Beyond power laws: a new approach for analyzing single molecule photoluminescence intermittency.
The photoluminescence intermittency (PI) exhibited by single emitters has been studied for over a decade. To date, the vast majority of PI analyses involve parsing the data into emissive andExpand

Dielectric Dependence of Single-Molecule Photoluminescence Intermittency: Nile Red in Poly(vinylidene fluoride)
The dependence of single-molecule photoluminescence intermittency (PI) or “blinking” on the local dielectric constant (ε) is examined for nile red (NR) in thin films of poly(vinylidene fluoride)Expand
