In my last update, I had completed the spectral studies with UV/Vis and Fluorescence where I collected data for the excitation and emission wavelengths. I found out my excitation wavelength was 618 nm, which helped me to determine the emission wavelength of 656 nm. With those tasks complete, it was time to start forming my
