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 irreversible inverse quantum efficiencies (IQEs) are found to be constant over the spectral region investigated, with the average reversible IQE being B¯α=8.70(±0.38)×105 and the average irreversible IQE being B¯e=1.396(±0.031)×108. The large difference between the IQEs is hypothesized to be due to…

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.

TLDR
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.
Recovery of photodegraded rhodamine 6g in ester-containing polymer matrices.
TLDR
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.
