The use of standards for the measurement of photoluminescence quantum yields (QYs) in dilute solutions is reviewed. Only three standards can be considered well established. Another group of six standards has been investigated by several independent researchers. A large group of standards is frequently used in recent literature, but the validity of these is less certain. The needs for future development comprise: (i) confirmation of the validity of the QY values of many commonly used standard… Expand

Determination of the photoluminescence quantum yield of dilute dye solutions (IUPAC Technical Report)
Procedures for the determination of photoluminescence quantum yields with optical methods are addressed, and challenges associated with these measurements are discussed. Special emphasis is dedicatedExpand
Absolute photoluminescence quantum yield of perylene dye ultra-thin films
Abstract Using integrating sphere method we have determined the absolute photoluminescence quantum yield (QY) of two perylene derivatives in ultra-thin films. Monomolecular and multilayer films wereExpand
Determination of the absolute fluorescence quantum yield of rhodamine 6G with optical and photoacoustic methods--providing the basis for fluorescence quantum yield standards.
This systematic comparison was performed in ethanol and in water employing different concentrations of R6G and experimental advantages and systematic sources of variation were identified for both methods. Expand
True absolute determination of photoluminescence quantum yields by coupling multiwavelength thermal lens and photoluminescence spectroscopy.
This work reports for the first time an innovative and elegant methodology, whereby the use of neat solvent/reference material required by thermal lens approaches is eliminated by coupling it to photoluminescence spectroscopy, allowing for the discrimination between materials with similar photolUMinescence quantum yields.

Critical review of the determination of photoluminescence quantum yields of luminescent reporters
Different optical and photothermal methods for measuring Φpl of transparent and scattering systems for the most common classes of luminescent reporters are discussed, and validated tools for the determination are provided to enable better judgment of the reliability of literature data. Expand
Photoluminescence spectra and quantum yields of gold nanosphere monomers and dimers in aqueous suspension.
The quantum yield of the dimers was found to be of same order of magnitude as that of the monomers, which indicates that the interparticle 'electromagnetic hot-spots' do not play a major role in the luminescence emission mechanism in such plasmonic molecules. Expand
Cyanine dyes as ratiometric fluorescence standards for the far-red spectral region.
Fluorescence quantum yields are reported for a series of commercially available cyanine dyes in methanol solution at room temperature, selected to span the wavelength region from 600 to 850 nm, with absolute emission quantum yields being determined by thermal blooming spectrometry. Expand
Absolute phosphorescence quantum yields of singlet molecular oxygen in solution determined using an integrating sphere instrument.
The radiative and nonradiative rate constants of O₂(a¹Δ(g), which are key parameters to understand the photophysical properties of singlet oxygen in solution, were evaluated and compared with the literature values determined based on the relative method. Expand

Comparison of methods and achievable uncertainties for the relative and absolute measurement of photoluminescence quantum yields.
This work compares two relative and one absolute fluorometric method for the determination of the fluorescence quantum yields of quinine sulfate dihydrate, coumarin 153, fluorescein, rhodamine 6G, and rhodamines 101, thereby providing evaluated standard operation procedures for Φ(f) measurements and, simultaneously, a set of assessed Φ (f) standards.

Effectiveness of Purge-and-Trap for Measurement of Volatile Organic Compounds in Aged Soils.
Compared with three methods for determination of VOCs in aged field samples, hot solvent extraction proved to be much more effective than the U.S. EPA-approved purge-and-trap technique, indicating the inefficiency of purge- and-trap as a method for evaluating vapor extraction remediation technology.
