Paper Abstract

The application of global analysis to time-dependent fluorescence data provides a power-ful technique for investigating complex, heterogeneous systems by defining common parameters to elements of a data set where the data has been obtained as a function of an independent variable. Another, related approach is to incorporate information obtained from other physical techniques into the analysis of time-dependent fluorescence data. The information from the independent method is used to define a linkage among the parameters within one element of the time-dependent fluorescence data set; the linkage establishes certain parameters as dependent variables. We call this a linked-function analysis, which can be used in the analysis of a single data set element or globally in the analysis of multiple data set elemets. This approach has been applied to time-domain fluorescence spectroscopy combi n ned with 1H-NMR spectroscopy to resolve ground-state and excited-state processes in the fluorescence decay of aromatic amino residues in peptides.
