Auto- and Cross-correlation using
lifetime filters
Dual color GFP and mCherry FLCS : methodology
GFP excited with pulsed laser = decay filter on green detector
Selecting photons coming from GFP fluorescence decay
Removing background photons (detector after pulses, shot noise…)
mCherry excited with continuous laser = background filter on red detector
Selecting photons coming from mCherry
Removing photons coming from GFP fluorescence decay
