Abstract

We report on an experimental setup for single-particle orbit tracking, which allows following fluorescent nanoparticles for more than 10 min with a temporal resolution of 4 ms and a dynamic position accuracy of better than 10 nm. On a model sample--20 nm sized fluorescent polymer beads in glycerol--we will illustrate how artifacts caused by unavoidable experimental shortcomings (might) obscure the experimental result and how misinterpretations can be prevented.
