What is it about?

The question of the observation of fluctuations from the same molecule in dilute liquids at room temperature was put forward by Zeno Földes-Papp in the article for the very first time. This fundamental question was exemplified by Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy: 2 MINUTES HISTORY OF (FCS) FLUORESCENCE CORRELATION SPECTROSCOPY.

Why is it important?

Under the PATRONAGE of Prof. JEAN DAUSSET and directed by Prof. Dr.med.univ. GERNOT TILZ, who is a knight of the French Legion of Honor (medicine class). Prof. JEAN DAUSSET (1916-2009), Immunologist and Nobel Prize winner in Medicine and Physiology in 1980 along with G.D. Snell and B. Benacerraf for their discovery and characterization of the genes making the major histocompatibility complex (MHC/HLA-system). Professor Dausset was the mentor and promotor of the Clinical Immunology at the Medical University of Graz, Austria. In addition, Prof. Dausset paved the way and was a co-founder and TEACHER of the "Medical School" in Graz (Austria) as well with the Jan Dausset Laboratory and the independent unit of clinical immunology, which also bore his honorary name at the Graz Medical University.


Here Zeno Földes-Papp began to ultimately trace back the physical phenomenon of thermodynamic jitter to a simple law.
