Concentric forster resonance energy transfer relay for the parallel detection of two bio/physicochemical process

Patent image
NRL

Described herein is a Förster (or fluorescence) resonance energy transfer (FRET) configuration with three energy transfer pathways between three luminescent components, where two of the energy transfer steps occur in sequence as a relay, and the first step of the relay is in competition with a third energy transfer process (energy transfer from the donor to the intermediary is in competition with energy transfer from the donor directly to the terminal acceptor).
