Dye tracing techniques involve the tagging of a sample of water with dye, providing important qualitative and quantitative information. This article presents physical and fluorescence properties of dye solutions obtained by diluting a pharmaceutical aqueous solution of eosin Y with distilled water. Sample solutions with eosin concentrations ranging from 0 to 20 g/L were examined under various temperatures and laser powers. The data include measurements of dynamic viscosity, surface tension and pH. Fluorescence emission spectra as well as laser beam attenuation and photobleaching measurements are also reported. The datasets provide guidelines for obtaining optimal dye mixtures and suitable optical configurations to implement eosin fluorescence techniques.
