Following in SPIE Photonics West conference in last January, we have a proceedings paper published.

A personal reprint can be found here.
We report of the following new results :
- microspheres made of high refractive index melamine resin provide a seven-fold fluorescence enhancement on single molecules.
- this effect can be used to increase the signal-to-noise ratio in fluorescence correlation spectroscopy and reduce the experiment integration time by fifty-fold.
- first description of dual-color fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy (FCCS) enhanced by a microsphere.
