Abstract : Extensive studies have been carried out on the time-resolved fluorescence, and fluorescence anisotropy, of a variety of synthetic polymers in dilute solution, disordered glasses, and solid state. Picosecond lasers were used for excitation and time-correlated single-photon counting for detection. Polymers studied included poly(styrene) and copolymers with methyl methacrylate, acrylonitrile and butadiene; polymethyl acrylate and methacrylate tagged, with vinyl-napthalene and acenaphthylene; various poly(diacetylenes), and 4,4' di-phenylene diphenyl vinylene.
