WikiProject Spectroscopy (Rated B-class, Mid-importance)

B-Class article B  This article has been rated as B-Class on the project's quality scale.
 Mid  This article has been rated as Mid-importance on the project's importance scale.

I've been making a lot of changes, and adding to the article significantly. I'll be the first to add to this discussion page with an invitation to, well... discuss, particularly if anyone disagrees with what I've done. I've also taken the liberty to advance the quality rating to B (from Stub) and the importance rating to Mid (from Low). The importance could arguably be rated 'high.' With respect to the spectroscopy project, it's true that FCS -- despite the 'S' in its name -- is only spectroscopy in a general sense. Most people associate spectroscopy with analysis of the spectrum of light frequency (color) rather than the spectrum of intensity fluctuations, as with FCS. Still, FCS is by no means an obscure technique. Many labs use it; units are available commercially; there are entire books devoted to it...-- Danrs 00:06, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Great addition to the article. It was about time! Maybe we can add figures to it to describe it even better? Maartend8 15:54, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Figure 1[edit]

doesn't seem to render, at least on my browser —Preceding unsigned comment added by Joshuav (talkcontribs) 17:15, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

yea i don't see it either —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:57, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
The image looks as though it was deleted. I have removed the text for the caption. Wisdom89 (T / C) 16:12, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Diffusion time[edit]

Where did you get the diffusion time of carboxyfluorescein ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fcsgirl (talkcontribs) 20:33, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Please. Please. WP:MOS exists. WP:MOSMATH exists. TeX exists, primarily outside of Wikipedia, and dating back to the 1980s. Please look at this edit and the ones right after it.

  • Too many capitals in section headings; see WP:MOS.
  • Many hyphens where endashes should be; see WP:MOS.
  • Some hyphens where minus signs should be. Observe:
3 - 5
3 − 5
They look different.
  • "< >" where \langle and \rangle should be. Observe:
They look different.
  • "Displayed" TeX was in many cases not indented.
  • \text not used in some cases. Thus:
They look different.

How does an article get so long without anyone attending to such basic stuff? Michael Hardy (talk) 20:18, 19 January 2010 (UTC)


Does FCS software belong to wikipedia? There is the open-source PyCorrFit or the postcard ware QuickFit 3. Then there is ImFCS for camera FCS or commercial software like SimFCS. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:49, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
