Abstract

Crystalline and polycrystalline polymers serve as hosts for photochemical hole buring chromophors. An example of such a system includes the chronophor phthalocyanine (H(2)PC) in the host high density polyethylene. Holes obtained with H(2)PC in this crystalline polymer have a full width at half maximum of the order of less than 0.1cm/-1/, whereas holes obtained with H(2)PC in the amorphous most polymethyl methacrylate have a width of the order of greater than 0.1cm/-1/.
