Chemiluminescence (CL) and optical upconversion (OU) are used to measure photosensitizer singlet oxygen production indirectly. Both methods produce light that is blue-shifted relative to the normal photosensitizing wavelength. The emission intensity is proportional to the concentration of singlet oxygen generated and is the result of either decomposition (CL) or energy transfer (OU) processes occurring inside a thin polymer film. Techniques for fabrication and characterization of CL and OU polymer films are discussed.
