Inspired by the smart photoswitchable characteristics of photochromic materials, a variety of light-driven functional materials have been exploited, such as ultrahigh-density optical data storage, molecular switches, logic gates, molecular wires, optic/electronic devices, sensors, bio-imaging and so on. This review commences with a brief description of exciting progress in this field and further development of these photo-switchable systems into practical applications as well as existing challenges are also discussed.
