Abstract
Photochromism is a specific example of photosensitivity in which the absorption spectrum of a material is altered by exposure to electromagnetic irradiation and in which the sample reverts to its original condition after cessation of the irradiation. This phenomenon has been observed in a variety of glasses and crystals. In addition to photochromism, photosensitivity is exemplified by permanent changes in absorption, refractive index, chemical durability or in other properties. Photosensitive materials provide a convenient means of producing spatial modulation of properties.
