Two-Photon Activated Photochromic Polymers

 


SolarNHyMat

The project is aimed at developing photochromic materials activated by two-photon excitation. Two-photon activated photochromic materials provide nanometric resolution in the photoinduced process. The novelty of this project resides in developing a polymeric matrix that works as two-photon absorption antenna with covalently linked photochromic units. This approach as the potential to overcome issues connected with the low two-photon absorption of the PC molecules, at the same time addressing the limitations of doping polymers with PC units.
