September was a fantastic month for Edinburgh Instruments customers with over 200 research papers published and many of these papers being published in high impact factor journals, including; Advanced Materials, JACS, and Nature. Here is a selection of some of the best from September.

What is the Difference between Luminescence, Photoluminescence, Fluorescence, and Phosphorescence?
The terms; luminescence, photoluminescence, fluorescence and phosphorescence are routinely used in research papers to describe the emission of light from a sample. This multiple naming can be confusing with several of the terms being used interchangeably and researchers from different scientific backgrounds preferring to use one name over another. In this article we answer the question, “What is the Difference between Luminescence, Photoluminescence, Fluorescence, and Phosphorescence”.
Raman Scattering in Fluorescence Emission Spectra – Common Errors in Fluorescence Spectroscopy
In the first of a series of blog posts about common errors made, our applications team discuss how to identify the presence of Raman scattering during fluorescence measurements and how to prevent this scattering from distorting fluorescence emission spectra.
Employee Spotlight – Peter Linton
We are excited to share the first in an “Employee Spotlight” series from our Edinburgh Instruments, where we welcome new recruit and graduate, Peter Linton, who started at the beginning of August.
We are thrilled to share the most recent solar energy research completed by St. John’s College, University of Cambridge. See how scientists have used semi-artificial photosynthesis to develop a new method to capture the sun’s energy utilising our FS5 Spectrofluorometer.
MOFs JACS Publication: Excited-State Electronic Properties in Zr-Based Metal Organic Frameworks as a Function of a Topological Network | Photophysics
Professor Pravas Deria at Southern Illinois University, recently had a paper on MOFs published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS). See how our FS5 Spectrofluorometer and LifeSpec II Fluorescence Lifetime Spectrometer were used for this research.
Time-correlated single-photon counting (TCSPC) is a well established and common technique for fluorescence lifetime measurements, it is also becoming increasingly important for photon migration measurements, optical time domain reflectometry measurements and time of flight measurements.
Professor Pi Tai Chou, Chair Professor of the Chemistry Department, and Director of the Center for Emerging Material and Advanced Devices, at National Taiwan University talks to us about his research on the anomalous photophysical and photochemical phenomena.
Our customers have been doing some brilliant research with our fluorescence instrumentation, and as such have had their research articles published in various leading journals. Take a look at some of the best articles published during the month of August.
Publication Highlight: Origin of Positive Ageing in Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diodes (QDLED)
Congratulations to our customer, Professor Shuming Chen and his research team at the Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen for the acceptance of their paper “Origin of Positive Ageing in Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diodes (QDLED)” in Advanced Science.¹
