Abstract

Multistep intermolecular energy migration between elongated fluorophores (carbocyanines) in uniaxially oriented polymer films is studied based on fluorescence depolarization and Monte-Carlo simulations. Contrary to disordered systems it is found experimentally that the concentration depolarization of fluorescence in uniaxially oriented films is extremely weak despite effective energy migration. Based on the concentration depolarization experiment in the ordered matrix it is possible to estimate the angle between absorption and fluorescence transition moments of carbocyanines. The values of that angle are very close to those obtained from other methods.
