Deeper Insight into Fluorescence-Excitation of Molecules by Light
Wahab, M. Farooq; Gore, Gordon R.
Physics Teacher, v51 n5 p306-307 May 2013
In a recent issue of "TPT," Gordon Gore made interesting observations about the red or yellow fluorescence when laser beams are passed through olive oil. With the excellent visuals contained in that article, we present a pictorial explanation of the questions that were raised in Ref 1 ("Fun with Fluorescence in Olive Oil," "The Physics Teacher," v50 n6 p377-378, Sep 2012). (Contains 6 figures.)
