Observation of fluorescence originating from transitions between excited electronic states in a large molecule Academic Article uri icon


  • In this note we report the observation of emission of the azulene molecule in the region of 13 200 cm-1, characterized by a quantum yield of 10-7, which is assigned to the 1A1(2) 1B1(1) radiative transition between excited electronic states of a large molecule. 1970.
