Photochromic supramolecular memory with nondestructive readout.

Abstract:
Looking without touching: The light-controlled isomerization of a complex containing a pyridine-appended dithienylethene (DTE; green) and a porphyrin dimer induces dramatic structural and spectral changes (see picture). These changes are monitored In a region outside the photochromically active absorption bands of DTE, therefore allowing a nondestructive readout so that the process functions as a molecular optically controlled memory.
