Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy 

published by the Simon Fraser University Department of Physics

Designed for a fourth-year biological physics laboratory, Phys 433, at Simon Fraser University.  Contact Nancy Forde (nforde@sfu.ca) or John Bechhoefer (johnb@sfu.ca) for further information.

• Learn the physics principles behind fluorescence correlation spectroscopy
• Understand the concept of a correlation function
• Use the signal detected from FCS of standard-sized particles to determine the extent
of the focal volume of a laser beam
• Determine the expected FCS signal for particles of different size
