Question How to define the WLS quantum yield 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 02 May, 2012
From: vesna cuplov <vesna cuplov>

Hello,

I use the WaveLength Shifting process to simulate the fluorescence process in visible light: absorption of an optical photon of Energy E and its emission at a lower energy E'. 

How do I specify the quantum yield for that process? The WLS parameters are WLSABSLENGTH, WLSCOMPONENT and WLSTIMECONSTANT. I use a fluorophore material and from the literature 
I know its absorption and emission spectra and its time constant (3ns). But from my simulation, I do not get enough fluorescent photons. The yield for that fluorophore is supposed to be 0.79. 

thank you for your help,
vesna
