The first fluorescence investigation of DNA oligomers performed with femtosecond resolution revealed that organisation of nucleotides into single strands, and further into double strands, make the fluorescence decays slower and slower. This is important because a longer lifetime increases the reactivity of the excited states and, thus, the probability to induce damages of the double helix
