VASCONCELOS, Cláudia K. B. de; FERREIRA, Giovana R.  e  BIANCHI, Rodrigo F.. Development and characterization of a polymer sensor based on the accumulation of blue light dose. Polímeros [online]. 2010, vol.20, n.1, pp.14-18.  Epub 05-Mar-2010. ISSN 0104-1428.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0104-14282010005000010.

In this work we investigated the optical behavior of poly[2-methoxy-5(2'-ethylhexyloxy)-p-phenylenevinylene] (MEH-PPV) under the effect of blue-light LED source applied in neonatal hyperbilirubinemia treatment. There is a visible response that covers the electronic absorption of bilirubin (350-500 nm), and hence this material is applicable for controlling the radiation doses in the treatment of jaundice of neonates, which is one of the most common reasons for hospital readmission of newborn infants. The results show that the material presents a gradation of color from orange-red to yellow and quenching on the absorption and photoluminescent (PL) spectra with the radiation exposure time. The rate of these changes can be altered by manipulations of organic solution concentration, suggesting these color and emission/absorption changes can be used to design an indicator-dosimeter that is readily associated with the radiation exposure time used in treating neonatal jaundice.
