Single-molecule FRET (smFRET) allows measuring distances between donor (D) and acceptor (A) fluorophores on the 3-10~ nm range. Solution-based smFRET allows measurement of binding-unbinding events or conformational changes of dye-labeled biomolecules without ensemble averaging and free from surface perturbations. When employing dual (or multi) laser excitation, smFRET allows resolving the number of fluorescent labels on each molecule, greatly enhancing the ability to study heterogeneous ...
