Abstract

An overlap term is used in fluorescence theory to account for the spectrally distributed interaction between laser radiation and molecular transitions. We present a dimensionless overlap fraction formulation. Compared with the more common dimensional overlap term [in units of inverse wave number (1/cm−1)], this form of expression of the interaction between a laser and an absorption transition has a much more practical interpretation and simplifies the equations that describe fluorescence measurements.
