Abstract: Relaxation measurements on a fluorescently labelled free DNA molecule after stretching by a Poiseuille flow in a capillary vessel reveal universal scaling features: at intermediate times the scaling exponent of the decay law for the molecule length as a function of time is found to be 0.51 +/- 0.05. This law is in agreement with the prediction of the Brochard-Wyart "stem and flower" model for the relaxation of a stretched polymer chain.
