Modern time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy affords detection and accurate quantification of fluorescence intensity decays as short as a few picoseconds. The method allows for measurements of dynamic events in the picosecond-nanosecond time frame. It is therefore especially useful for the study of macromolecular structure and dynamics, in particular for evaluating predictions from molecular dynamics simulations.
