Abstract: With the help of single-molecule fluorescence detection methods, optical studies have made many breakthroughs in the field of physics. Single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) is one of the most generally applied techniques. In this thesis are the details of a setup described, which controls the potential electrochemically. Over 50 single blue copper azurin (CuAz) labeled with ATTO655 (position K122) were analyzed. Its properties, such as the midpoint potential (E0), the distribution of on- and off-times, and the autocorrelation are discussed.
