Abstract

The intrinsic steady-state fluorescence and fluoresence decay of Staphylococcus epidermidis, Psuedomonas fluorescens, Enterobacter cloacae, Escherichia coli, and Bacillus subtilis have been observed. Excitation spectra were obtained while emission at 430, 455, 487 and 514 nm was being monitored. Emission spectra were obtained with the use of excitation wavelengths of 340, 365, 405, 430, and 460 nm. Fluorescence lifetimes were measured at 430, 487, and 514 nm while selective excitation was caused at 340, 405, and 430 nm. The complex nature of the excitation and emission spectra reflects the presence of a number of different fluorophores.
