Dye-infiltrated polymer nanotubes are constructed via a simple vapor deposition polymerization process (see figure). 1D poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) nanofibers doped with two dyes with significant spectral overlap between the donor and the acceptor display special fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) properties.
