    Introducing a cluster formation model, we provide a rational fundamental viewpoint for the difficulty to achieve n-type doped diamond. We argue that codoping is the way forward to form appropriately doped shallow regions in diamond and other forms of carbon such as graphene. The...

    Results of investigation into the triplet-triplet energy transfer from a vacuum-deposited anthracene film to the Langmuir-Blodgett rhodamine dye film are presented. It is demonstrated that the observed long-delayed sensitized dye fluorescence is caused by annihilation of migrating triplet excitons.

    We discuss fluorescence as a method to detect polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and other organic molecules, as well as minerals on the surface of Mars. We present an instrument design that is adapted from the ChemCam instrument which is currently on the Mars Science Lander Rover Curiosity and...

    The jet-cooled laser-induced fluorescence and dispersed fluorescence spectra of the S1(A1′)←S0(A1′) transition of triphenylene are reported. The spectra exhibit false origins of e′ symmetry which are modeled by performing calculations of Herzberg-Teller coupling using...

    Single molecule spectroscopy requires molecules with low triplet yields and/or short triplet lifetimes. The intersystem crossing (ISC) rate may be dramatically enhanced by the host matrix. Comparing the fluorescence intensity of single terrylene molecules in para-terphenyl, naphthalene, and...
