Abstract
A class of organic molecules which will photoisomerize when irradiated into resonances in the 2.7-3.4 micron region is described. These are single photon reactions which can have a high quantum efficiency and which can lead to optical nonlinearities. The optical properties of host-guest materials containing such photoisomerizable compounds are discussed.
