Recent studies of polymers in solution and in bulk by energy transfer between two fluorescent labels are reviewed. Such studies are concerned with the equilibrium and dynamics of polymer chain expansion, molecular cluster formation in solution, the miscibility of polymers in bulk, and the interdiffusion of polymer latex particles.
