Fluorescence blinking is a universal phenomenon in single molecule/particle detection of fluorophores. Much attention has been directed toward unraveling the cause of blinking, the underlying mechanism for the inverse power-law blinking statistics, and the environmental effects on blinking. More recent developments in fluorescence blinking include less toxic fluorescence markers, blinking suppression, single-photon sources, and solar energy conversion.
