In this paper, we report a scheme for reversible state-transition of the automaton responding to a single kind of a photonic signal. The state is encoded into the conformation of hairpin-DNAs tethered with azobenzene, which is responsive to visible and UV light irradiation. The reversible behavior is realized by carrying out a sequence of conformation-change of the hairpin-DNA in a stepwise manner. Experimental results demonstrate that the state can be changed reversibly according to photonic signals.
