1 and 2-Photon Fluorescence Anisotropy Decay to Probe the Kinetic and Structural Evolution of Sol-Gel Glasses: A Summary


We review recent 1- and 2-photon fluorescence studies of the formation dynamics and structure of sol-gel glasses, from nanometre-sized particles to clusters, prepared from both aqueous silicates and tetramethylorthosilicate (TMOS), over a broad pH range. Through the careful choice of a fluorescent probe, anisotropy decay has been shown to provide both… (More)
