Three-pulse photon-echo peak-shift (3PEPS) experiments were performed to investigate structural relaxations relevant to solvation dynamics of a cyanine dye which is noncovalently anchored to aqueous interfaces of unilamellar phospholipid vesicles. For comparison, complementary 3PEPS measurements were performed on the same optical chromophore dissolved in bulk water. The influence of the lipid polymorphism is studied in great detail through the temperature dependence of the 3PEPS decay. As… CONTINUE READING
