Abstract
We report on the optical characterization and measurement of oxygen singlet quantum yield of Chlorophyll and Chlorin e6 in water-ethanol mixtures by direct observation of thermal relaxation using time resolved thermal lens method. The analysis of the time-resolved curve allows the determination of the quantum yield of singlet oxygen formation. The quantum yield is deduced from the relative magnitudes of the fast and slow components.
