Chemists at the University of California, Riverside fabricate novel rewritable paperChemists at the University of California, Riverside fabricate novel rewritable paper

Chemists at the University of California, Riverside have fabricated in the lab novel rewritable paper, one that is based on the color switching property of commercial chemicals called redox dyes. The dye forms the imaging layer of the paper. Printing is achieved by using ultraviolet light to photobleach the dye, except the portions that constitute the text on the paper. The new rewritable paper can be erased and written on more than 20 times with no significant loss in contrast and resolution.
