Single Molecule Fluorescent Measurements of Complex Systems

Abstract: In the past three decades single molecule microscopy (SMM) methods have evolved into extremely successful tools for revealing hidden properties and mechanisms in a broad range of complex systems in various scientific disciplines. These methods are particularly useful for analyzing stochastic processes where the state of individual molecules changes. My project aims to study two complex systems in single molecule level: quantum dots and trans- membrane proteins, where both show random alternations between micro states of the system.
