16. European Short Course on “Principles and Applications of Time-resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy”

Montag, 05. November 2018 - Donnerstag, 08. November 2018

PicoQuant GmbH

Max-Born-Straße 2a, 12489 Berlin

This course is held in cooperation with Prof. J.R. Lakowicz from the Center for Fluorescence Spectroscopy and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Aim and purpose

The course is intended for individuals wishing an in-depth introduction to the principles of fluorescence spectroscopy and its applications to the Life Sciences. Attendees are typically professionals who are using or intend to use fluorescence in their research. Most attendees have some knowledge of fluorescence, typically in a specialized area. However, individuals from totally different research areas and from industry get the opportunity to enter this exciting field in a very effective way and will especially benefit from the experimental section.

Course organization

The course consists of lectures and experimentations include steady-state and time-resolved experiments as well as data analysis, performed on various instruments provided by market leading companies.

The lectures on Monday and Tuesday will deal with basics of steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy, instrumentation and data analysis. They cover time-domain and frequency-domain measurements, anisotropy, solvent effects, quenching and Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET).

On Wednesday and Thursday, the lectures cover advanced time-resolved fluorescence topics and data analysis. Applications of fluorescence in biophysics, sensing, plasmon controlled fluorescence or material science are presented along with an introduction to fluorescence microscopy.

The practical sessions including steady-state and time-resolved experimentation as well as data analysis are offered on various instruments provided by market leading companies.

Practical Sessions

Practical sessions on various instruments will be offered.
