Title: Organic solid state switches incorporating porphyrin compounds and method for producing organic solid state optical switches

Abstract

A light-intensity dependent molecular switch comprised of a compound which shuttles an electron or a plurality of electrons from a plurality of electron donors to an electron acceptor upon being stimulated with light of predetermined wavelengths, said donors selected from porphyrins and other compounds, and a method for making said compound.
