Quantum dot studies with time-resolved super-resolution microscopy
Quantum dots (QDs) are semiconductor nanoparticles whose optical properties make them ideal candidates for a myriad of applications including fluorescence imaging and light harvesting technologies. They are highly emissive and their stochastic switching between states of low and high intensity, called blinking, lends them particularly well to super-resolution (SR) microscopy studies. This thesis is devoted to the development and application of a SR microscope with exceptionally high temporal resolution, so that the fluorescence lifetime, intensity, and emitter location can be simultaneously ...
