Abstract

An approach that uses video microscopy to simultaneously track roughly one hundred fluorescently labeled thermally activated particles in a single field of view was developed. The flexibility and range of applicability of this technique were demonstrated by examining three systems (a glycerol/water solution, agarose, and a semiflexible biopolymer F acting) that display different types and ranges of heterogeneity.
