We report on optical imaging studies of self-healing after laser-induced photodamage in disperse orange 11 dye doped into poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) polymer. In particular, the high spatial-contrast image of the damage track made by a line focus pump laser allows the recovery rates to be measured as a function of burn dose using the relationship between transverse distance and pump intensity profile. The time evolution of the damaged population results in an intensity-independent time… 
Imaging studies of temperature dependent photodegradation and self-healing in disperse orange 11 dye-doped polymers.
TLDR
While the temperature dependence predictions of the modified correlated chromophore domain model (mCCDM) are confirmed, it is found that it is quantitatively incompatible with the mCCDM as recovery in DO11/PS is found to behave as a stretched (or double) exponential as a function of time.
Testing the diffusion hypothesis as a mechanism of self-healing in Disperse Orange 11 doped in poly(methyl methacrylate)
In this work, we show that reversible photodegradation of Disperse Orange 11 doped in poly(methyl methacrylate) is not due to dye diffusion—a common phenomenon observed in many dye-doped polymers.
Measuring electric field dependent photodegradation and recovery of disperse orange 11 dye doped polymer thin films using photoconductivity and digital imaging microscopy
