A new class of ablative recording materials for storage applications is described, and the class comprises semiconducting and conducting polymer films. The storage device can be made in two different embodiments. In the first embodiment the storage device comprises a layered structure on a suitable substrate, such as glass, with a thin, opaque, highly reflecting metal film deposited on the substrate, and a thin film of the polymer material deposited on the metal film. The second embodiment comprises a thick film of the polymer material deposited on the substrate.
