The chief object of the present communication is to describe a mode of observation, which occurred to me after the publication of my former paper, which is so convenient, and at the same time so delicate, as to supersede for many purposes methods requiring the use of sun-light. On account of the easiness of the new method, the cheapness of the small quantity of apparatus required, and above all, on account of its rendering the observer independent of the state of the weather, it might be…

This brief communication examines two of Stokes' major biological contributions, namely his description of the phenomenon of fluorescence and his studies on the changes in the colour of blood following oxidation and reduction.
Restriction of Intramolecular Motion(RIM): Investigating AIE Mechanism from Experimental and Theoretical Studies
Mechanistic studies promote scientific development from phenomena to theories. Aggregation-induced emission(AIE), as an unusual photophysical phenomenon, builds the bridge between molecular science
Aggregation-Induced Emission: A Trailblazing Journey to the Field of Biomedicine.
It is believed that AIEgen-based bioprobes will play vital roles in the exploration of mysterious life processes by integration with various cutting-edge modalities and techniques with an ultimate goal of addressing more healthcare issues.
Beyond the visible spectrum – applying 3D multispectral full-body imaging to the VirtoScan system
Three-dimensional multispectral full-body imaging enables the detection of latent evidence that is invisible to the naked eye and allows visualization, documentation and analysis of evidence beyond the VIS spectrum.
Polarized epifluorescence microscopy and the imaging of nematic liquid crystals in highly curved geometries.
PFM is developed, a technique to qualitatively determine a director field, even when refraction effects are too strong to use optical polarized microscopy, and validated on the well-studied cases of a planar nematic cell, spherical nematic droplets, and a cylindrical capillary filled with nematic liquid crystal.
Principles of Aggregation‐Induced Emission: Design of Deactivation Pathways for Advanced AIEgens and Applications
The novelty and originality of AIE in the field of photochemistry lies in the creation of functionality by design and in the active control over deactivation pathways.
Aggregate Science: From Structures to Properties
The concept of "aggregate science" is put forward to fill the gaps between molecules and aggregates and the structure-property relationships established for aggregates are expected to contribute to new materials and technological development.
Progress and Perspective of Solid-State Organic Fluorophores for Biomedical Applications.
In this Perspective, insights are provided that could aid researchers to further develop SSOF-based tools and overcome the limitations such as limited aqueous dispersibility, low biocompatibility, and uncontrolled emission.
