Paper Abstract

Evanescent field fluorescence has recently been used in industry, biology, and medical research work. We present a rigorous electromagnetic theory of evanescent field distributed in layered structure for some different cases. We make use of the fact that stimulated fluorescence is proportional to the local electric field energy. Measuring the relative fluorescence gives the cell-glass separation. Some applications of evanescent field fluorescence are introduced in this paper.
