Molecular Spectroscopy Solutions for Research and Development

Molecular Spectroscopy is a subcategory of spectroscopy that studies the interaction of radiation with molecules and extended materials, as opposed to atomic spectroscopy techniques which deal with individual atoms.

Edinburgh Instruments Webinar: What is Nanosecond Transient Absorption?

We are delighted to announce the next in our series of popular webinars - “What is Nanosecond Transient Absorption?” This webinar session will be taking place on 6th and 19th August, to accommodate for all time zones.

UV Visible Spectroscopy Instrumentation for Research

"In the spotlight" UV-Visible Spectroscopy Instrumentation - In this article we take a look at some of the accessories which can be used with our DS5 Dual Beam UV-Vis Spectrophotometer.

Spectral Resolution in Raman Spectroscopy

The spectral resolution in Raman spectroscopy dictates the maximum number of spectral peaks that the spectrometer can resolve. The level of spectral resolution required is dependent on the sample and what information the user is aiming to obtain from the Raman spectrum. Five main factors determine the spectral resolution achievable: slit size, diffraction grating, spectrometer focal length, detector, and the

Role of the Pinhole in a Confocal Microscope

The pinhole is the defining feature of a Confocal Raman Microscope, providing major advantages in spatial resolution and imaging contrast over a conventional optical microscope. In this article we take a look at the role of the pinhole in a Confocal Raman Microscope.

Spatial Resolution in Raman Spectroscopy

Achieving high spatial resolution in Raman microscopy is crucial for high quality Raman maps. This article details the main factors contributing to lateral and axial resolution.

Edinburgh Instruments Asian Webinars - July 2020

Browse the series and register your interest.

What is Laser Induced Fluorescence?

Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) is an optical spectroscopic technique where a sample is excited with a laser, and the fluorescence emitted by the sample is subsequently captured by a photodetector. LIF can be understood as a class of fluorescence spectroscopy where the usual lamp excitation is replaced by a laser source. Find out more.
