Scholarcy highlights

  • Efficient collection and detection of fluorescence coupled with careful minimization of background from impurities and Raman scattering enable routine optical microscopy and study of single molecules in complex condensed matter environments
  • This ultimate method for unraveling ensemble averages leads to the observation of new effects and to direct measurements of stochastic fluctuations
  • Room-temperature investigations apply several techniques to a growing array of biophysical problems where new insight may be gained from direct observations of hidden static and dynamic inhomogeneity
