Polarized Fluorescence in an Electric Field
the possibility of measuring not only the second, but also the fourth moment of the orientation function and therefore to test the separation of the electrical and optical factors and the mechanism of orientation.
the possibility of obtaining separate information about the conformations of chromophores with essentially overlapping absorption bands but different quantum yields of fluorescence; they will appear as a single class in electric dichroism but can eventually be separated in a polarized fluorescence experiment, as for example, if one of them has zero quantum yield.
