Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a good mathematical model description of excitation and fuorescence of Haematoporphirine (HpD), under saturation conditions. This complex molecule can be described as a three level atom and under special conditions by a two level atom. The interaction between atom and light is well known and can be represented by rate equations which enables us to do calculations on various interactions. This model gives a better understanding of fluorescence of a photosensitizer and shows it is possible to determine several molecular constants of HpD.
