Spiropyran-based biodegradable polymer all-optical transistors integrate the switching and modulation of visible light frequency

Abstract

All-optical modulation of a spiropyran-based device, integrating the transmittance switching (absorption) and wavelength modulation (emission) of visible light frequency induced by alternating UV/visible light irradiation is demonstrated. As an alternative to conventional organic transistors, all-optical devices based on SP-PCL have potential utility as single molecular transistors for optical switching and visible wavelength modulation.
