Links to spectral & fluorescence data (open access)

Fluorescence data and optical spectral data in general is only scarcely available online. Therefore useful links will be added here with time.

See also the collection of spectral databases in the native Spectragryph format, ready-to-use with the Spectragryph database search function!

Properties of fluorescent compounds
