Paper Abstract

We have recently demonstrated that fluorescence emission can be quenched by laser light pulses from modern high-repetition rate lasers, a phenomenon we call 'light quenching'. We now describe some of the possible effects of light quenching on the time- resolved intensity and anisotropy decays of fluorophores. We show that light quenching can decrease or increase the time-zero anisotropy, and that the initial anisotropies can increase to unity under selected conditions. Quenching with time-delayed light pulses is predicted to result in oscillations in the frequency-domain intensity and anisotropy decays. The increasing available and use of pulsed laser sources of light offers the opportunity for a new class of one- two- or multiple-pulse time- resolved experiments.
