All complex fluorophores such as fluorescent proteins display a fraction of the population that absorb light but do not emit fluorescence. Accurate measurement of this ‘dark’ fraction is of critical importance for quantitative microscopy in cell biology. We used a nanophotonic method to measure the dark fraction of several frequently used red fluorescent proteins.
