Percolation-type Photoswitching Behavior in Conductance of Diarylethene-Silver Nanoparticle Networks
A silver nanoparticle network interlinked by photochromic diarylethene dithiophenols was fabricated and its photoreactive and conductive properties were investigated. The network showed reversible changes in absorption spectra and conductance by photoirradiation. The results indicate the percolation-type behavior.
