The need for measuring fluorescence lifetimes of species in subdiffraction-limited volumes in, for example, stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy, entails the dual challenge of probing a small number of fluorophores and fitting the concomitant sparse data set to the appropriate excited-state decay function. This need has stimulated a further investigation into the relative merits of two fitting techniques commonly referred to as “residual minimization” (RM) and “maximum likelihood” (ML). Fluorescence decays of the well-characterized standard, rose bengal in methanol at room temperature (530 ± 10 ps), were acquired in a set of five experiments in which the total number of “photon ...

Ternary R4Mn3–xAu10+x (R = Gd or Y; 0.2 ≤ x ≤ 1) compounds have been synthesized and characterized using single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure is a ternary variant of orthorhombic Zr7Ni10 (oC68, space group Cmca) and is isostructural with Ca4In3Au10. The structure contains layers of Mn-centered rectangular prisms of gold (Mn@Au8), interbonded via Au atoms in the b-c plane, and stacked in a hexagonal close packed arrangement along the a direction. These layers are bonded via additional Mn atoms along the a direction. The ...
