In the liquid phase, frequent collisions among fluorescent monomer and quencher molecules provide plenty of opportunity to form exciplexes. In the vapor phase, however, collisions are much less likely, and emission at the exciplex wave-length becomes insignificant.

However, traditional luminogens suffer from aggregation-induced quenching (AIQ) in the solid state form, mostly due to the formation of excimers and exciplexes species.
Pyrene conjugates of oligonucleotides as potential diagnostic probes attract attention of researchers due to the unique properties of pyrene such as long fluorescence lifetime, considerable sensitivity to the microenvironment, high quantum yield, and ability to form excimers and exciplexes [4].
