Ultrasound-modulated fluorescence from rhodamine B aqueous solution
Author(s): Baohong Yuan; Yuan Liu

Paper Abstract

We report experimentally observed ultrasound-modulated fluorescence (UMF) from a submillimeter tube filled with rhodamine B aqueous solution. The tube was submerged in water and a scattering medium. Based on the measured data, we find that the UMF signals might be generated from three mechanisms: modulation of the excitation light, modulation of the emission light, and modulation of the properties of fluorophore. In addition, a linear relationship between the UMF and the drive voltage applied to the ultrasound transducer is found.
