The photostability of the nonlinear optical dye, Hemi-22, improves upon encapsulation in DNA thin films. The interactions of Hemi-22 with DNA, along with the intrinsic properties of DNA are responsible for these remarkable improvements in the photostability of the dye in comparison to the dye in a poly(methyl methacrylate) as a control.
