1/9 Could graphene coverslips improve your single-molecule fluorescence and superresolution experiments? In our article in @AdvancedAms we combine #DNAorigami with #graphene to perform #singlemolecule #biophysics, #biosensing & #superresolution microscopy.
2/9 Graphene is almost transparent and quenches fluorescence in a range of ~40 nm. Fluorescence intensity or fluorescence lifetime of single molecules directly tell you the distance of a molecule to the surface. Differences in the z-direction as small as 2.9 nm are resolved. Image
3/9 Dynamics with graphene energy transfer (GET). We use GET to visualize motion on top of a graphene surface and determine the timescale of fluctuations via autocorrelation analysis. Image

In 1930, anticipating the Nobel Prize, CV #Raman bought two tickets to Stockholm, other for his wife, as early as September, 3 months early.

His conviction was not misplaced; was decorated with the Nobel Prize for Physics that year for his path-breaking work. #BirthAnniversary
Raman was also the first Non white to get Nobel Prize in science. It took merely Rs.200 to make this discovery & now millions of rupees.

University of Cambridge offered him a Professor’s job.

He rejected & later appointed as 1st Indian Director of IISc Bangalore in 1933.
Later he wrote his experience of sitting under Union Jack while recieving the prize. How it led to his breakdown.
