Nonlinear absorption spectra of ethidium and ethidium homodimer
Journal article, 2012

The Z-scan technique was used to determine the spectral dependence of the nonlinear absorption in well-known DNA intercalators: ethidium bromide and its homodimer. It is found that the compounds show essentially the same features of their nonlinear absorption spectra with the magnitudes of the relevant cross sections scaling with molecular weight of chromophore compound.
