Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer, FRET, is largely used in biology to demonstrate the occurrence of molecular interactions. In order to investigate the vicinity between collagen and calcium phosphate in bone substitute biomaterial, composites constituted of autofluorescent collagen and apatite doped by europium were synthesized by a precipitation method. The first results show a fluorescence energy transfer between the two fluorescent components and are very promising.
