Photon harvesting by excimer-forming multichromophores

Author affiliations


A light-harvesting system based on a DNA-organized oligopyrene–cyanine complex is described. Energy transfer from the pyrene units to the cyanine dye was found to proceed via FRET from locally confined excimers to the acceptor.
