Study of Forster’s Resonance Energy Transfer Between MWCNT and Phenoxazone 660
The laser induced fluorescence has been used to study the interaction between phenoxazone with multiwalled carbon nanotubes. The Phenoxazone P660–MWCNT pair shows Forster’s resonance energy transfer (FRET) from Phenoxazone P660 (donor) to MWCNT (acceptor). The FRET efficiency of this pair increases with the increase of the acceptor concentration. The Stern–Volmer plot indicates static as well as dynamic quenching with a maximum efficiency of 87 % observed in this pair. The result of the study indicate the possible applications of MWCNT-Phenoxazone pair as a spectroscopic nano-ruler.
