A method is presented with the aid of which the absorption spectrum of at least one of the two states of a photochrome can be calculated from experimental difference spectra. It is shown that the method can be applied to (biological) photochromes contained in inhomogeneous media together with absorbing, non-photochromic impurities. This medium may have the properties of an optical waveguide.
