Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

This article demonstrates a new fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) based approach to determine the donor-acceptor distributions and apply it to two model molecular systems: double stranded DNA labeled with Hoechst 33258 and FAM, and perylene randomly surrounded by cobalt ions in a bulk solution. The approach makes some generic assumptions regarding the FRET kinetics, but no a priori assumptions regarding the distribution function.
