An inorganic–organic hybrid photochromic material with fast response to hard and soft X-rays at room temperature

Author affiliations

Abstract

A photochromic compound with fast response to Mo-Kα (4 min) and Al-Kα (1 s) X-rays was synthesized using a cluster of high-Z atoms and a flexible viologen zwitterion. The coloration time of 1 s when exposed to soft X-rays is the recorded minimum for X-ray-induced photochromic materials, indicating a potential to detect low-energy X-rays.
