Abstract
Diarylethene is one of photochromic material with many advantages and one of the most promising recording materials for huge optical data storage. Diarylethene has two forms, which can be converted to each other by laser beams of different wavelength. The material has been researched for rewritable optical disks. Volatile data storage is one of its properties, which was always considered as an obstacle to utility. Many researches have been done for combating the obstacle for a long time. In fact, volatile data storage is very useful for anti-piracy optical data storage. Piracy is a social and economical problem. One technology of anti-piracy optical data storage is to limit readout of the data recorded in the material by encryption software. By the development of computer technologies, this kind of software is more and more easily cracked. Using photochromic diarylethene as the optical recording material, the signals of the data recorded in the material are degraded when it is read, and readout of the data is limited. Because the method uses hardware to realize anti-piracy, it is impossible cracked. In this paper, we will introduce this usage of the material. Some experiments are presented for proving its feasibility.
