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.
