The focus of PicoQuant’s long-standing workshop lies on ultrasensitive optical detection down to the single molecule level as well as beyond the classical diffraction limit. The event provides an interdisciplinary platform for exchanging ideas and recent results between researchers and professionals working in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, life and materials science.
During the workshop, talks and posters will cover a wide range of applications and methods revolving around the challenging field of Single Molecule Spectroscopy.
- Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM)
- Single-molecule Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (smFRET)
- Polarization and Anisotropy based techniques
- Quantitative imaging methods
- New fluorescence sensors and labelling schemes
- Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) and Fluorescence Lifetime Correlation Spectroscopy (FLCS)
- Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscopy
- Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (e.g., PALM, STORM, dSTORM, GSDIM, PAINT)
- Open source data analysis solutions
- Big Data and Machine Learning approaches to superresolution and single molecule techniques
Both widefield and confocal fluorescence microscopy techniques are covered as well as in vivo and in vitro measurements with single-molecule sensitivity.
