Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) is used to study the movements and the interactions of biomolecules at extremely dilute concentrations, yielding results with good spatial and temporal resolutions. Using a number of technical developments, FCS has become a versatile technique that can be used to study a variety of sample types and can be advantageously combined with other methods. Unlike other fluorescence-based techniques, the analysis of FCS data is not based on the average intensity of the fluorescence emission but examines the minute intensity fluctuations caused by spontaneous deviations from the mean at thermal equilibrium.
