Informing Spectroscopists for Over 40 Years

16th European Short Coure on Time-Resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy

5 November 2018 to 8 November 2018

The course is intended for individuals wishing an in-depth introduction to the principles of fluorescence spectroscopy and its applications to the Life Sciences. Attendees are typically professionals who are using or intend to use fluorescence in their research. Most attendees have some knowledge of fluorescence, typically in a specialized area. However, individuals from totally different research areas and from industry get the opportunity to enter this exciting field in a very effective way and will especially benefit from the experimental section.

This years course will cover a broad range of topics, including:

  • Basics of fluorescence spectroscopy
  • Instrumentation and data analysis
  • Time-domain and frequency-domain measurements
  • Anisotropy
  • Solvent effects
  • Quenching
  • Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)
  • Fluorescence sensing
  • Fluorescence spectroscopy in biophysics and material science
  • Plasmon-controlled fluorescence
