    Abstract : We have studied fundamental aspects of time-resolved two-photon excited fluorescence depolarisation. The thesis presents experimental as well as theoretical progress. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards Undistorted Fluorescence for Tissue Diagnostics and Therapy Monitoring

    Author : Haiyan Xie; Atomfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; upconversion; upconverting nanoparticles; fluorescence-guided-surgery; fluorescence diagnostics; photodynamic therapy; multi-spectral imaging; spectroscopy; biomedical optics; fluorescence; Fysicumarkivet A:2014:Xie;

    Abstract : Fluorescence techniques for applications in tissue diagnostics and therapy monitoring were investigated and developed in the work presented in this thesis. The aim was to develop fluorescence diagnostics for the detection of malignant tumors and better delimitation of the tumor margins, using the enhanced contrast in fluorescence between tumor and surrounding healthy tissue.

  3. 3. Laboratory x-ray fluorescence tomography

    Author : Jakob C. Larsson; Hans Hertz; Anna Burvall; Ulrich Vogt; Norbert Pelc; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; x-ray; fluorescence; x-ray fluorescence; nanoparticle; xrf; xfct; tomography; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : X-ray fluorescence (XRF) tomography is an emerging bio-imaging modality with potential for high-resolution molecular imaging in 3D. In this technique the fluorescence signal from targeted nanoparticles (NPs) is measured, providing information about the spatial distribution and concentration of the NPs inside the object.

  4. 4. Temporal Modulation in Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Imaging for Biological Applications

    Author : Gustav Persson; Jerker Widengren; Jörg Enderlein; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; fluorescence; spectroscopy; microscopy; modulated excitation; intensity modulation; fluorescence correlation spectroscopy; transient states; molecular kinetics; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the benefits of intensity modulation for the purpose of extending the range of applications of fluorescence spectroscopy and imaging in cellular and molecular biology and medicine. Long-lived transient states of fluorescent molecules can, because of their long lifetimes, be used to detect subtle changes in the microenvironment of the molecule. READ MORE

  5. 5. First As Probe, Then As Function - Fluorescence in Bio-inspired Nanotechnology

    Author : Jonas Hannestad; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : self-assembly; lipid membrane; bio-inspired; FRET; light-harvesting; spectroscopy.; fluorescence; nanotechnology; single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy; DNA;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I demonstrate how fluorescence can be used in the context of bio-inspired nanotechnology, both as an indirect probe and as a function in itself. By combining principles and molecules from three different bio-molecular systems, DNA, bacterial light-harvesting complexes and cell membranes, I have constructed nano- and microscale systems for long-range excitation energy transfer, light-harvesting and reaction control.
