5 Fluorescence: a type of light emission First observed from quinine by Sir J. F. W. Herschel in 1845First observed from quinine by Sir J. F. W. Herschel in 1845 Blue glass Filter Church Window! <400nm Quinine Solution Yellow glass of wine Em filter > 400 nm 1853 G.G. Stoke coined term “fluorescence”

8 Why measure lifetimes?   Absolute quantities- not merely ratios or time- averaged intensities   A snapshot of the excited state behavior   Largely independent of sample concentration and absorbance cross-section-in contrast to- steady state   Dynamic information-rotation-correlation times, collisional quenching rates and energy transfer processes   Additional dimensions for fluorescence data – increased specificity, sensitivity and selectivity   Lifetime senses local molecular environment (e.g. polarity, pH, temperature, electrostatics etc)

18 Hallmarks of Frequency Domain Rapid, robust data collection, no worry about pulse pileup as single-photon techniques True differential technique, no deconvolution of IRF Economical 10 ps resolution with common cw sources Xenon lamps and lasers (strong, affordable UV source!) Intuitive numerical data interpretation Compatible with global analysis ( separate complex decays )

19 Data Analysis in Frequency Domain If the time domain response expression is given by I(t), it will have sine and cosine transform expressions: in which N  and D  are the numerator and denominator terms

20 Data Analysis in Frequency Domain For the sum of exponentials model, the sine transform is: and the cosine transform is:

21 Data Analysis in Frequency Domain From the sine and cosine transforms, one calculates, at each frequency, the expected phase and magnitude terms:

22 Data Analysis in Frequency Domain Compare the calculated values to actual data Calculate the reduced  2 value and residuals Interpret physical significance of the results

23 Data Analysis in Frequency Domain Calculation of  2 and the residuals of the fit: where d  and dm are the errors of the measurement, and is the number of degrees of freedom.

24 Multiexponential decay in Frequency Domain

25 Data Fitting – wrong model will be clearly evident Mixture of two fluorophores will not fit to single exponential decay model!

26 Mixtures and multicomponent decays on the SPEX Tau3 This data is clearly not single exponential, we need to increment the model

27 Mixtures and multicomponent decays

28 Mixtures and multicomponent decays on SPEX Tau3 Adding a second component greatly improves the fit – and is justified statistically

29 Fluorescence Polarization

30 SPEX Fluorescence Anisotropy Measurements in Steady State Anisotropy - measure polarized emission Uses polarizers in excitation and emission paths Measure vertical (V) and horizontal (H) intensities Calculate from these intensity measurements

31 Anisotropy and Polarization Polarized emission with polarized excited light P = r = P = ; r = I ║ - I ┴ I ║ + I ┴ I ║ - I ┴ I ║ + 2I ┴ 3r 2 + r 2P 3- P x z y Photoselection

33 Anisotropy: steady state

34 Steady State Anisotropy: the Perrin equation r 0 is the fundamental anisotropy (at zero time),  is the (average) fluorescence lifetime, and  is the (average) rotational correlation time

35 0 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5 020406080100120 [Protein],  M Anisotropy, r Monomers: Small Rapid rotation Unhindered Low anisotropy Depolarized Dimers: Larger Slow rotation Hindered by Viscosity High anisotropy Polarized

36 Anisotropy decay (TREA) in frequency domain Excitation is always V polarized –Pockels cell or laser provide this Measures the differential phase of emission  diff =  V -  H (this may be in L or T format) Also measures the RMA: –Ratio of the Modulated Amplitudes –Corrected for all instrument response terms, including PMT frequency dependent gain differences and G factor VERY RAPID DATA COLLECTION

37 Anisotropy Decay - Data Analysis where the  terms represent rotational correlation times. Frequently the preexponential terms are normalized to the fundamental anisotropy, becoming fractional contributions:

39 Excitation Anisotropy Spectrum of Perylene in Oil

40 TREA of perylene in oil Fun questions: –does perylene rotate like a sphere? –or like a disk? –how can we tell? –We know perylene is a D 2h rotor, can we see different modes? –what can the Fluorolog-Tau3 show us is happening? –(Assume isotropic solvent - oil in this case)

41 TREA of perylene - using a spherical rotor model Wrong Model! (3 Reasons)

42 TREA of perylene - using anisotropic rotor model Correct Model!
