Abstract
The process of generating entangled photons by a biphoton source is examined in the context of the detection of correlated two-photon absorption (TPA) induced fluorescence in an organic material. This effect may have possible applications in spectroscopy as well as chemical and biological sensing. The use of certain organic branched molecules which possess large cross sections for random TPA is presented in relation to the magnitude of the correlated two-photon absorption rate. The results of the angular dependence of the biphoton statistics are presented. Estimates of the expected correlated two-photon-absorption rate and subsequent number of emitted photons from the organic material are discussed.
