Wavelength dependence of reversible photodegradation of disperse orange 11 dye-doped PMMA thin films
Using transmittance imaging microscopy, we measure the wavelength dependence of reversible photodegradation in disperse orange 11 (DO11) dye-doped (poly)methyl-methacrylate (PMMA). The reversible and
Imaging studies of temperature dependent photodegradation and self-healing in disperse orange 11 dye-doped polymers.
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.
Recovery of photodegraded rhodamine 6g in ester-containing polymer matrices.
Recovery of the ASE signal is observed in dye-doped thermoplastic polyurethane and glycol-modified poly(ethylene terephthalate); both polymers contain repeating ester groups in their backbone to mediate the full recovery of rhodamine 6g from a photodegraded state.
Random lasing and reversible photodegradation in disperse orange 11 dye-doped PMMA with dispersed ZrO2 nanoparticles
We report the observation of intensity feedback random lasing at 645 nm in Disperse Orange 11 dye-doped PMMA (DO11/PMMA) with dispersed ZrO$_2$ nanoparticles (NPs). The lasing threshold is found to
Photodegradation and self-healing in a Rhodamine 6G dye and $$\hbox {Y}_{2}\hbox {O}_{3}$$Y2O3 nanoparticle-doped polyurethane random laser
AbstractOne of the fundamental difficulties in implementing organic dyes in random lasers is irreversible photodegradation of the dye molecules, leading to loss of performance and the need to replace
Imaging studies of photodegradation and self-healing in anthraquinone derivative dye-doped PMMA.
1,8-dihydroxyanthraquinone (Dantron/Chrysazin) is found to be having the best photostability and recovery characteristics of all dyes tested in this study, and three rules-of-thumb are developed to qualitatively predict the photostabilities and Recovery characteristics of anthraquin one derivatives.
Self-Healing Properties of 1-Amino,2,4-Dibromoanthraquinone Dye Doped in PMMA Polymer
We used fluorescence spectroscopic measurements as a probe to study the self-healing properties of anthraquinone derivative molecules doped in poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA).


Mechanisms of reversible photodegradation in disperse orange 11 dye doped in PMMA polymer.
An energy level diagram is constructed that describes all measured quantities in the decay and recovery processes and a hypothesis of the nature of the associated states is proposed.
Recent progress in reversible photodegradation of Disperse Orange 11 when doped in PMMA
We report observations that dye-doped PMMA polymer with the organic dye Disperse Orange 11 exhibits self healing after photodegradation by continuous optical pumping whereas in liquid solution,
The role of the polymer host on reversible photodegradation in Disperse Orange 11 dye
The photodegradation and recovery process in anthraquinone chromophores have been characterized using am plified spontaneous emission (ASE) in several Anthraquinone derivatives doped in poly(methyl
Lasing action and photodegradation of Disperse Orange 11 dye in liquid solution
We report optically pumped lasing action near 650nm of 1-amino-2-methylanthraquinone (known as Disperse Orange 11 or DO11) in the common laser dye solvents dimethylformamide and dimethylsulfoxide.
Photodecay mechanisms in side chain nonlinear optical polymethacrylates
The chemical and physical properties of photobleached nonlinear optical (NLO)‐polymethacrylates were studied in order to investigate photobleaching mechanisms. We have shown by three key measurement
Two-photon fluorescence measurements of reversible photodegradation in a dye-doped polymer.
The energy dependence suggests that photodegradation is a linear process, while recovery is entropic, which could be useful to high-intensity devices such as two-photon absorbers, which can be used in many applications.
Influence of an electric field on photodegradation and self-healing in disperse orange 11 dye-doped PMMA thin films
The influence of an applied electric field on reversible photodegradation of disperse orange 11 doped into (poly)methyl-methacrylate (PMMA) is measured using digital imaging and conductivity
Reversible photodegradation of organic light-emitting diodes
A phenomenon in which the electroluminescence from an organic light-emitting diode is suppressed by the absorption of visible light is reported. This at-least partially reversible degradation has a
