Glass Dyes

DR1-Glass is synthesized by incorporating a methyaminotriazine derivative that shows glass-forming ability into Disperse Red 1 (DR1) that forms surface relief gratings (SRG) caused by irradiation with two interfering laser beams. It can be performed in one step and in high yield without purification to afford a material that can be coated without matrices and has the following properties:

  • (1) Forming amorphous glass thin films with absorption max ranging from 410 to 570nm
  • (2) High resistance to crystallization,
  • (3) Forming SRG similar to DR1-PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) by laser interferometry
