Energy-transfer experiment

Photograph of the fluorescence of dye-loaded zeolite L layers upon monochromatic irradiation at 485 nm and observation through a 500-nm cut-off filter. Probes Py and Ox are references loaded with the dyes pyronine and oxonine. Probes A to E contain a 1:1 mixture of Py and Ox with the following loading for each dye: A) p, B) 2.5 p, C) 5p, D) 10p, and E) 20p.
