Optical detection of heterogeneous single molecule diffusion in thin liquid crystal films.


Lateral diffusion of three different dye molecules (terrylene and two perylene diimides) in 4 to 225 nm thin films of 8CB liquid crystals in the smectic-A phase has been investigated on a single molecule level. The influence of film thickness on tracer diffusion can be qualitatively modeled by a hydrodynamic approach. Molecular tracking experiments as well… (More)
