Abstract: A novel dendrimer containing eight perylene diimide chromophores has been synthesized and studied by ensemble and single-molecule spectroscopic techniques. Photon anti-bunching ( coincidence) measurements on single molecules embedded in zeonex polymer films show that the dendrimer behaves as a deterministic ( triggered) single photon source with only one fluorescence photon being emitted following pulsed laser excitation, even when more than one chromophore is excited. This behaviour is due to efficient singlet - singlet annihilation being operative in this dendrimer. Preliminary results indicate that the triplet lifetime and yield for this molecule are similar to the values for a molecule containing a single perylene diimide chromophore.
