The morphology of thin films of Laponite (Lap) clay elaborated by the evaporation method and spin-coating technique was analyzed by atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy, indicating a better quality film for the latter procedure. Rhodamine 6G (R6G) laser dye was intercalated into these films by ion exchange mechanism, performed by(More)
The photoluminescence response of Rhodamine 6G (R6G) laser dye intercalated into solid thin films of Laponite (Lap) clay is studied as a function of dye loading. Fluorescence spectroscopy (steady-state and time-resolved techniques) was used to characterize the R6G species adsorbed into the solid films. For very diluted R6G loadings (</=0.1% CEC, i.e., the(More)
Absorption and fluorescence (steady-state and time-correlated) techniques are used to study the photophysical characteristics of the pyrromethene 650 (PM650) dye. The presence of the cyano group at the 8 position considerably shifts the absorption and fluorescence bands to lower energies with respect to other related pyrromethene dyes; this is attributed to(More)
Absorption and fluorescence spectroscopies with linearly polarized light are applied to characterize the adsorbed species of rhodamine 6G (R6G) laser dye in ordered organophilic laponite (Lap) clay films for low dye loadings. The organophilic character of the clay was controlled by the number of organic surfactant dodecyl-trimethylammonium (C12TMA) cations(More)
