This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract Single molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (smFRET) experiments probe molecular distances on the nanometer scale. In such experiments, distances are recorded from FRET transfer efficiencies via the Förster formula, E = 1 / ( 1 + ( R / R 0 ) 6 ) . The energy transfer however also depends on the mutual orientation of the two dyes used as distance reporter. Since this information is typically inaccessible in FRET experiments, one has to rely on approximations, which reduce the accura...
