Although there is no concrete or universal definition of scintillation, one important aspect is whether the incident excitation energy can generate multiple carriers or not.
3+] in C2 is filled with four DBM ligands, which efficiently transfer the excitation energy to central metal ion and also provides better shielding of metal ion from surrounding environment.
The new complexes have a linear, rotationally flexible structure, and it is this rotation that allows 100% of the excitation energy to be harvested, by a new emission mechanism ( rotationally accessed spin-state inversion , RASI).

With a combination of different microscopy techniques the scientists at the University of Bayreuth were able to visualize the transport of excitation energy along these nanofibers.
It is concluded that the dissipation of excessive excitation energy in the PS II may be the major protective mechanism to prevent the chloroplast from photodamage.
Because DOM doesn't absorb red excitation energy, but algae do, red excitation fluorimetry provides fluorescence detection free from interference errors caused by DOM.
With its 18-bit ND, the spectrometer has a high dynamic range, making it an ideal option for measurements requiring resolution of extremely small fluorescence or Raman signals in the presence of high levels of excitation energy.
