Title: Optical gating of perylene bisimide fluorescence using dithienylcyclopentene photochromic switches

The emission of millions of fluorescence photons from a chromophore is controlled by the absorption of a few tens of photons in a photochromic molecule. The parameters that determine the efficiency of this process are investigated, providing insights for the development of an all-optical gate.
