An optoelectronic device which can read magnetically stored information, and convert it into optical light signals using organic or “plastic” semiconductors is described. Such a device may use OLEDs, and may be termed an “organic magneto-optic transducer” (OMOT). An OMOT device can read magnetically stored information, and convert it into optical light signals. The OMOT may provide benefits such as non-volatile storage, flexible films, reduced cost, and operation at room temperature.
