Abstract
A new category of erasable optical storage media, M1-(Beta) (TCNQ) films, is described. The photochromatic effect of thin organometallic charge-transfer complex can give high contrast patterns directly produced on the film by pulsed photon beams generated from a He-Ne tube or a semiconductor laser. The patterns are erasable by the same light source under different irradiating conditions. Typical experimental results were as follows: For (lambda) equals 632.8 nm, write-in power equals 16 mW, pulse duration equals 300 ns; erasing power equals 8 mW, pulse duration equals 25 microsecond(s) ; coefficient of contrast K > 50%; number of write- erase cycles N > 1000. For (lambda) equals 830.0 nm, write-in power equals 12 mW, pulse duration equals 650 ns; erasing power equals 4 mW, pulse duration equals 15 microsecond(s) ; K > 25%; N > 120.
