    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Exciton diffusion has been studied in 5-25-nm-thick films of zinc tetra-(p-octylphenyl)-porphyrin (ZnTOPP) spin-coated onto quartz slides by intentional doping with quenchers using steady-state as well as time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The fluorescence spectra of the films are very similar to those of solutions, indicating emission from localized exciton states. From the dependence of the fluorescence quenching on the quencher concentration and fluorescence lifetime measurements, the exciton diffusion can be concluded to be quasi-one-dimensional with an exciton diffusion length of 9 ± 3 nm and an intrastack energy-transfer rate constant of 1011-1012 s-1. From fluorescence anisotropy decay measurements, we conclude that neighboring stacks aggregate in a herringbone structure, forming ordered domains that are randomly oriented in the substrate plane. These measurements indicate an interstack energy-transfer rate constant of (7 ± 2) × 1010 s-1
