Ultrafast kinetics of 9-decylanthracene photodimers and their application to 3D optical storage Academic Article uri icon


  • The intermediate states and final product of the photoreaction of 9-decylanthracene monomer and photodimer have been identified and their formation and relaxation pathways and rates determined. In addition, these molecules have been used as media for high density 3D optical storage devices.
