Paper Abstract

The fluorescence lifetimes of merocyanine 540 (MC 540) in ethanol, methanol, and suspensions of DMPC and DPPC liposomes were studied using a laser-based time-correlated single photon counting system. Time-resolved fluorescence of MC 540 in methanol and ethanol can be analyzed with a single-exponential model, fluorescence decays of MC 540 in lecithin suspensions show biexponential behavior. We also present basic information about time-resolved fluorescence analysis software, designed and used by the authors as an integrated data station.
