Kim, Choongik, Samuel W. Thomas, and George M. Whitesides. 2010. “Long-Duration Transmission of Information with Infofuses.” Angewandte Chemie 122 (27) (May 18): 4675–4679. doi:10.1002/ange.201001582.
“Infofuse” for long: “Infofuses”—chemically based systems for non-electronic communication that can transmit alphanumeric information encoded as pulses of light (see picture)—can now operate for hours without extinction. These characteristics improve their potential for a new approach to information technology that combines chemistry and information—“infochemistry”.
