Fluorescence Lifetime Mapping

One of the most difficult techniques to perform on SWCNTs in fluorescence microscopy. Albeit these structures have a very high quantum yield, in order to excite them and detect their fluorescence we must consider two different optical ranges and it is necessary to have dispersed and impurity free material. We focus our attention of fluorescence microscopy in the spirit of assessing the applicability potential of SWCNT hybrids in bio-imaging. SWCNTs fluoresce in the range that biological tissues are transparent so using this technique has tremendous implications for applications in this field in particular.
