    We present the results of our study of the electrooptic properties of a one-dimensional photonic crystal created from alternating thin layers of two organic compounds, a ferroelectric and a dye. We show that the ferroelectric subsystem of molecular layers in such a heterostructure can be...

  • X-ray contrast dyes.  // FDA Consumer;Oct85, Vol. 19 Issue 8, p30 

    Because it is difficult to get good X-ray images of soft body tissues, contrast dyes are sometimes given to patients to make the organs of interest stand out more clearly on the X-ray film. These dyes are safe and effective, but not without side effects.
