Spectroscopy RTP New Equipment - A fluorescence spectrometer

The spectroscopy RTP is pleased to take delivery of a fluorescence spectrometer, a Edinburgh instruments FS5. The FS5 is a purpose built fully integrated spectrofluorometer capable excitation from >200 mn to 800 nm and detection of emission from 200 nm to 860 nm. The system can not only measure Steady State Fluorescence but also has an integrating sphere to enable quantum yield measurements and is capable of measuring Phosphorescence life time (>5 us to 10 s ). The system is capable of measuring liquids from -50 to 100 C and solids, powders, and films at room temperature although a -190 C solid samples is planned for the near future. We are hoping to be offering training on the system to new users soon but if you have samples ready the RTP staff are happy to run them for you. If you have any questions or wish to discuss and future experiment, please contact
