Authors: Martin Oheim, Adi Salomon, Maia Brunstein
Abstract: Fluorescence detection, either involving propagating or near-field emission, is widely being used in spectroscopy, sensing and microscopy. Total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) confines fluorescence excitation by an evanescent (near-) field and it is a popular contrast generator for surface-selective fluorescence assays. Its emission equivalent, supercritical angle fluorescence (SAF) is co… ▽ More
