26th International Workshop on 'Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy'

26th International Workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy”

Mittwoch, 08. September 2021 - Freitag, 10. September 2021

PicoQuant

The focus of PicoQuant’s long-standing workshop lies on ultrasensitive optical detection down to the single molecule level as well as beyond the classical diffraction limit. The event provides an interdisciplinary platform for exchanging ideas and recent results between researchers and professionals working in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, life and materials science.

During the workshop, talks and posters are presented that cover a wide range of applications and methods revolving around the challenging field of Single Molecule Spectroscopy.

Covered topics include:

  • Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM)
  • Single molecule Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (smFRET)
  • Polarization and Anisotropy based techniques
  • Quantitative imaging methods
  • New fluorescence sensors and labeling schemes
  • Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) and Fluorescence Lifetime Correlation Spectroscopy (FLCS)
  • Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscopy
  • Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (e.g., PALM, STORM, dSTORM, GSDIM, PAINT)
  • Open source data analysis solutions
  • Big Data and Machine Learning approaches to superresolution and single molecule techniques

Both widefield and confocal fluorescence microscopy techniques are covered as well as in vivo and in vitro measurements with single molecule sensitivity.
