The polarized fluorescence emission of organic fluorophores has been extensively studied in photonics and is increasingly exploited in single molecule scale bio-imaging. Expanding the polarization properties of compact molecular assemblies is, however, extremely challenging due to depolarization and quenching effects associated with the self-aggregation of molecules into the sub-nanometer scale. Here we demonstrate that Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) can act as a 1D host-template for the…

Confinement of Dyes inside Boron Nitride Nanotubes: Photostable and Shifted Fluorescence down to the Near Infrared
It is demonstrated that organic dye molecules are passivated and photostable when they are encapsulated inside a boron nitride nanotube (dyes@BNNT), which reduces the toxicity of the dyes and induces exceptional chemical robustness, even in harsh conditions.
