Semiconductor QDs have emerged as a novel class of fluorophore with unique photoluminescence properties, in particular, CdSe/ZnS core-shell QDs have been successfully used as biocompatible fluorescence resonance energy transfer donors. Here we report FRET between CdSe/ZnS core-shell QDs (donor) and organic dye fluorescein 27 (F27) (acceptor). The results(More)
Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), time-resolved fluorescence and anisotropy decays were determined in large unilamellar vesicles (LUVs) of egg phosphatidylcholine with the FRET pair N-(7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl)-1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phospho-ethanolamine as donor and lissamine rhodamine B(More)
PURPOSE To determine the impact of ultraviolet (UV) laser radiation on Bombyx mori embryos in terms of its effect on embryonic and larval haemolymph proteins and morphological traits. MATERIALS AND METHODS The eggs of silkworm strain NB4D2 were exposed to third harmonic laser pulses at 355 nm from a Nd:YAG laser for different durations of 30, 60, 90, 120,(More)
The rotational diffusion of three probes: coumarin 522B (C522B), coumarin 307 (C307) and coumarin 138 (C138) with nearly identical size was studied at room temperature employing steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence anisotropy techniques in series of alcohols and alkanes. Experimental observations indicate faster rotation of C138 compared to the other(More)
The rotational dynamics of four structurally similar polar molecules viz., coumarin 440, coumarin 450, coumarin 466 and coumarin 151 has been studied in binary mixtures comprising of dimethyl sulphoxide and water at room temperature using the steady state fluorescence depolarization method and time correlated single photon counting technique. The binary(More)
In this paper, a systematic investigation of the interaction of bovine serum albumin (BSA) with water-soluble CdTe quantum dots (QDs) of two different sizes capped with carboxylic thiols is presented based on steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence measurements. Efficient Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) was observed to occur from BSA donor to(More)
The rotational dynamics of three structurally similar polar molecules viz., coumarin 440, coumarin 151 and coumarin 450 has been studied in alcohols at room temperature using steady-state fluorescence depolarization method and time correlated single photon counting technique. The observed reorientation times of all the three probes are found to be longer(More)
The absorption and fluorescence spectra of laser dyes: coumarin 504T (C504T) and coumarin 521T (C521T) have been recorded at room temperature in a series of non-polar and polar solvents. The spectra of these dyes showed bathochromic shift with increasing in solvent polarity indicating the involvement of π→π⁎ transition. Kamlet-Taft and Catalan solvent(More)
The effect of solvents on absorption and fluorescence spectra and dipole moments of coumarin 307 (C307) and coumarin 522B (C522B) have been studied extensively in various solvents, viz., general solvents, alcohols and binary mixtures (acetonitrile-benzene) at 298K. The bathchromic shift observed in absorption and fluorescence spectra of C307 and C522B with(More)
