Light Harvesting and Energy Transfer in Novel Convergently Constructed Dendrimers

By the attachment of interacting laser dyes to the chain ends and focal point of a dendritic macromolecule it is possible to funnel energy harvested by the large peripheral antenna of the dendrimer (see picture on the left) efficiently and directly to the central fluorescent core (picture in the middle) by a process that does not involve the dendrimer inner backbone. The energy is then emitted as a narrow band of fluorescent radiation from the core (picture on the right).
