Analysis of Complex Fluorescence Decay Data
There are a number of methods of representing time-resolved fluorescence decay data currently in use, e. g. i) a discrete number of exponential decays with usually n < 3 or A. ii) a continuous distribution of exponential decays, using sums of either symmetrical or unsymmetrical functions, such as Gaussians or Lorentzians (Alcala et al., 1987); and iii) one or more exponential decays including a diffusional (sqrt t) term to represent a diffusional mechanism (Nemzek and Ware, 1978).
