Nondestructive readout by an excitation light with high fluorescence contrast has been achieved using red, green, and blue fluorescent dyes (see figure). Reversible thermoresponsive recording of fluorescent images (TRF) using a molecularly doped matrix made up of a fluorescent dye, a leuco dye, and a developer is reported.
