Paper Abstract

Techniques to characterize the molecular excited states of nonlinear chromophores are presented. These techniques include linear absorption, fluorescence, and quadratic electroabsorption. The experiments are described and results presented. A new approach, electrofluorescence, where the fluorescence signal is modulated by an applied voltage, is also discussed. Preliminary electrofluorescence results indicate that this approach has merit as a valuable characterization technique.
