8 May 1995 Lifetime-based identification of single molecules
Author Affiliations +
Our new developed time-correlated single photon counting electronics allows for continuous registration of time-resolved fluorescence signals in millisecond intervals. With this electronics, adapted fluorescence measurement system, we studied single molecule transitions through a focused laser beam. In our paper we present measurements on single rhodamine 6G- molecules and discuss data processing methods, using the full information of the time resolved measurement. The use of this information influences significantly the reliability of the detection of single molecule transits. Further developments and applications of this method are discussed.
