|Abstract(s):||The photophysical behavior of several probes incorporated in sol-gel–derived matrices (both monoliths and thin films) has been studied using steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence, along with fluorescence anisotropy to study the matrix structure and to elucidate probe-matrix interactions. The probes studied include laser and solvatochromic dyes along with porphyrins and phthalocyanines. It was found that spectral shifts, time-resolved decays, and quantum yields depend on the type of matrix and its preparation conditions combined with the drying time and the nature of retained solvent, which can be added to act as an anticracking agent. The differences between the results in the TiO2 matrix, where electron transfer is most probably present, and SiO2 are shown.|
