A reversible tuning and a persistent modification of physical properties by external stimuli are one of the main challenges in materials science.Especially, photo-control over the physical properties is important from the viewpoint of the practical application as well as the basic science. The photo-tunable compounds can be used future memory devices, optical switches and so on. Along this line, we are currently studying photo-tunable molecular magnets, valence tautomeric compounds, spin-crossover complexes and photonic crystals.
