21_10-11b/2009Two-Step Energy Transfer: Energy Transfer in Fluorescent Nanofibers Embedding Dye-Loaded Zeolite L Crystals (Adv. Mater. 10–11/2009)

The inside cover displays a confocal image of electroluminescent polymeric nanofibers embedding dye-loaded zeolite L crystals obtained by electrospinning. Varun Vohra and co-workers show on p. 1146 that such nanofibers exhibit a two-step energy transfer (FRET) from the polymer to the dye molecule inside the zeolites. The stopcock molecule present at the channel entrances is the key to this two-step energy transfer.
