Abstract
The Boolean logic operations such as OR, AND and NOR are demonstrated using photostimulated luminescence (PSL) phenomenon in the imaging plate (IP) which is made by BaFBr:Eu photostimulable phosphor. The PSL in Eu and Sm co-doped SrS (SrS:Eu,Sm) phosphor ceramics is studied in order to develop a smart erasable and rewritable optical memory utilizing PSL phenomenon, because the SrS:Eu,Sm phosphor ceramics which are excited with UV-light or visible light exhibits an intense PSL, compared with that in UV-irradiated IP. Intense PSL with a peak at about 600 nm is observed in SrS:Eu,Sm phosphor ceramics which is stimulated with infrared light after irradiation with ultraviolet-(UV) light or visible-light. The PSL characteristics of SrS:Eu,Sm phosphor ceramics as a photostimulable material for the optical memory are reported.
