Abstract:

For chirooptic molecular memory system, induced chirality on an azobenzene-containing amorphous polymer film was investigated using circularly polarized Ar laser with various ellipticity. High intense CD spectrum proved that optical-induced chirality on the amorphous film. Additionally, elliptically polarized light induced much higher chirality than circularly polarized light.
