A strategy to enhance the readout contrast of nanoscale data storage was achieved using light irradiation through the photo-induced amplification effect. This effect has shown wavelength-selective and light power-dependent characteristics. These results provided a new approach to enhancing the readout contrast of the STM recording image.
