Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy is fundamental in many physical, chemical and biological studies of molecular diffusion. However, the concept of fluorescence correlation is founded on the assumption that the analytical description of the correlation decay of diffusion can be achieved if the spatial profile of the detected volume obeys a three-dimensional Gaussian distribution. In the present Letter, the analytical result is instead proven for the fundamental Gaussian-Lorentzian profile. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
