Abstract

Fluorescence-detected linear dichroism (FD-LD) enables one to collect linear dichroism spectra for oriented fluorophores in the presence of other absorbing species and light scattering. The experiment proceeds by scanning the excitation wavelength and using a filter to collect only emitted photons from the fluorophore. Thus, it has the potential to give data with enhanced selectivity and quality. By using a synchrotron radiation light source and fluorescence-detection, we show data for a range of fluorophores in different orienting environments. Film and flow-oriented FD-LD spectra were collected down to 170 nm. Even for flow-oriented liposomes, we have data collected down to 210 nm. For strongly scattering samples, for example, liposomes, FD-LD has the clear advantage that scattering is absent for the longer wavelength fluorescence photons. The collimated and smaller beam size of the synchrotron radiation also gives rise to sharper and more well-defined features in the spectra.
