Abstract

A highly fluorescent photochromic polymer, poly-BTFO4, was prepared. The fluorescence quantum yield of the poly-BTFO4 was six times higher than that of BTFO4. Fatigue resistance of the polymer at its photostationary state was significantly enhanced compared with that of BTFO4. Importantly, the poly-BTFO4 film also showed an efficient photochromism as well as strong fluorescence similar to the results in solution, which allow photoinduced fluorescence switching applicable to optical switches.
