Abstract

A mathematical technique for analysis of fluorescence decay data has been developed by Isenberg and his co-workers,1–7 which is based on the method of moments. We shall refer to this method as IMOM (Isenberg Methods of Moments). More precisely, IMOM is a method for estimating the parameters a. and T. which identify the impulse response function:
$$f(t) = \sum\limits_{i = 1}^n {{\alpha _1}} \exp ( - t/{\tau _i})$$
(1)
In this paper we will focus on some recent developments of the IMOM theory dealing with the number, n, of decay components and the cutoff error.
