Time resolved investigation of tiny fibre fluorescent probes (the ones we use to measure deep in the lung)

Great work from Katjana getting this time resolved spectroscopy paper out.

In MDPI Sensors

We highly load fluorophores onto optical fibres for medical sensing, but when you pack in a lot of fluorophore the behaviour gets complex. How to investigate?

We use our favourite technique, time resolved spectroscopy!

Direct observation of the energy transfer / quenching effects in both the spectral and time axis – showing the power of the time resolved methods.

Directly relevant to our previous paper https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-019-44077-7 in Scientific Reports and our other recent works https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aca.2020.07.063 , https://doi.org/10.1364/OL.381018 ,

But I hope relevant to the much wider community developing fluorescence based fibre probes.
