Abstract

The development of a novel photoluminescent ink for rewritable media that dichroically emits phosphorescence due to a structural bistability of the self-assembled luminophor is discussed. By coating a white polyethylene terephthalate (PET) paper with a Cu(I) complex containing a polymer support were fabricated. The photoluminescent ink is used for rewritable media that dichroically emits phosphorescence due to a structural bistability of the self-assembled luminophor. This feature is realized by the control of kinetic and thermodynamic processes that can provide security technology for information handling.
