Fermat principle the path of a ray of light between two points is the path that minimizes the travel time, see also Find the fastest path
Fermat principle
Fermat principle the program show all possible paths for light emitted from the point source, reach the air/water interface then all heading towards blue/green dot. The real path which arrive at either blue or green dot, is the path that has the smallest traveling time

Jablonski diagram this tutorial explores how electrons in fluorophores are excited from the ground state into higher electronic energy states and the events that occur as these excited molecules emit photons and fall back into lower energy states. Fluorescence activity can be schematically described with the classical Jablonski diagram, first proposed by Professor Alexander Jablonski in 1935 to describe absorption and emission of light
