Fluorescence Course

18th International Course on
“Principles and Applications of Time-resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy”

November 8-11, 2021, Virtual Meeting

Image Fluorescence Course

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.

 

Scope

This year, our famous course on “Principles and Applications of Time-resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy” will be held as a virtual event. During the course, you will get an in-depth introduction into the fascinating world of time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy techniques and even in combination with microscopy.

Our focus is not limited to applications in Life Sciences but also extends to various topics in Materials Science. This course combines a series of lectures presented by renown experts in the field with several practical sessions. During these session, we will demonstrate how even novice users can get really great results through a series of live demonstrations on various systems.

Who should attend?

Our course is aimed at students and researchers who are interested in getting deeper insights into various spectroscopy and microscopy techniques, which are based on time-resolved fluorescence. The course is also a great opportunity to directly interact with renowned specialists as well as for networking with your peers.

Why should you attend?

By joining our event, you will:

  • Learn the basic principles underlying the techniques of time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy as well as in combination with microscopy
  • Get to know new applications which will be helpful in advance your research
  • Understand how time-resolved data are acquired and can be analyzed
  • Interact directly with experts to discuss your research, daily challenges with samples, and results
  • See different systems featuring various accessories for a broad range of different application and samples
  • Network and socialize with your fellow scientists and foster collaborations

Which topics are covered?

Attending all lectures and practical sessions will improve your understanding of the following topics:

  • Instrumentation and data analysis
  • Time-resolved measurements from ps up to ms of liquids and solids
  • TRPL imaging: coupling of a photoluminescence (PL) spectrometer with a microscope
  • Imaging methods: FLIM and  PLIM
  • Correlation spectroscopy methods: Antibunching as well as  FCS and FCCS

Practical sessions

Impressions from the practical sessionsThe practical sessions will be live streamed from our application lab in Berlin. We will demonstrate a broad range of time-resolved spectroscopy and microscopy experiments on various state-of-the-art instruments and software solutions.

If you are curious about time-resolved fluorescence and how it can help your research, then don’t hesitate to register now and learn all about this fascinating topic.
