Abstract

Fluorescence anisotropy decays are generally measured with a pulse fluorometer, determining fluorescence decays by the single photo-electron method,1–3 which has been described here in several earlier contributions. A schematic of such an apparatus devoted to depolarization measurements is shown in Figure 1.
