Abstract

An expression is derived for the anisotropic fluorescent emission in uniaxial liquid crystals where fluorescent sites governed by an initial nonrandom distribution of orientations are subject to rotational Brownian motion. The possibility of nonparallelism of absorption and emission oscillators is also considered. The Journal of Chemical Physics is copyrighted by The American Institute of Physics.
