Klaus Suhling develops and uses advanced multidimensional fluorescence imaging techniques such as Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) to understand the properties and interactions of macromolecules in the life sciences. After obtaining his PhD in the field of fluorescence spectroscopy from the University of Strathclyde, he held several post-doctoral positions in biology, chemistry and physics departments, mostly at Imperial College London, working on fluorescence microscopy and the development of photon counting techniques. Professor Suhling joined King’s College London in 2003 and was a Lecturer and a Reader before being promoted to Professor of Physics in 2014.


Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging, time-correlated single photon counting, photon counting imaging, time-resolved fluorescence.

Current research: Diffusion studies of labelled drugs and proteins, cells using FRAP and tr-FAIM, FLIM and FAIM of fluorescent molecular rotors, imaging of nanoparticles in cells, photon counting imaging with an image intensifier or an electron-bombarded CCD.
