Abstract
We report here a method for measuring and eliminating artifacts caused by background in fluorescence lifetime or rotational correlation data using multiharmonic Fourier transform frequency domain fluorometry. A single measurement on a blank yields phase and amplitude values for multiple modulation frequencies simultaneously, and these may then be used to correct the sample's data. Experimental results demonstrate the applicability of the method over a wide range of background contributions.
