We describe a novel laser chemical process having potential for optical data storage and processing applications. Reversible oxygen exchange involving WO3, using readily available laser sources offers improved durability and versatility over existing erasable optical data storage media. Being interconvertable using heat and blue-green laser sources, the well known yellow WO3 and blue W2O5 can function as erased and written states.
