With perovskite being such a hot topic at the moment Halide perovskite photovoltaic cells have attracted tremendous attention due to the rapid rise in solar cell efficiencies, and their potential for providing high-efficiency low-cost solar power. In this blog post we highlight our recent application notes which focus on perovskites and their reactions to various photoluminescence spectroscopy measurements.
Latest from the blog
Take a look at some of the research papers from February that have been published by customers using our fluorescence spectrometers.
As manufacturers of state of the art fluorescence spectroscopy instrumentation, we are able to meet the most demanding applications within photophysics, photochemistry, material sciences and life sciences. In this article we give a quick overview of the configuration options available:
We were delighted to catch up with Arey Professor of Chemistry, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Professor Thomas J. Meyer and talk to him about the work he is doing, and how our spectrometers are helping him with this research.
Cryostats and other temperature control solutions allow you to control experimental conditions for precise sample measurements.Edinburgh Instruments, Ltd., utilizes multiple types of sample holders for temperatures as low as 4 K and up to 600 °C, the broadest range available on the market today.
Tech Eyes Online, a Japanese online portal focusing on measurement instrumentation, recently caught up with our Japanese distributor at the 18th Light & Laser Technology Exhibition in Tokyo. Find out what he had to say about the company and our instruments.
The Jablonski Diagram is widely used in fluorescence spectroscopy to illustrate the excited states of a molecule and the radiative and non-radiative transitions that can occur between them.
Hooray. It’s competition time. Our research team have been hard at work in the lab conducting fluorescence spectroscopy measurements. Do you know what they’ve been measuring? Why not have a guess and be in with a chance to win a goodie bag from Edinburgh Instruments.
Publication Highlight – Colloidal Quantum Dots: Enhancing the Photoluminescence Quantum Yield through Surface Passivation
Congratulations to our customer, Professor Arjan J. Houtepen and his research group at Delft University of Technology, who recently had their paper “Finding and Fixing Traps in II−VI and III−V Colloidal Quantum Dots: The Importance of Z‑Type Ligand Passivation” published in JACS. In this research highlight we will discuss the importance of Prof. Houtepen’s work on colloidal quantum dots and the photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy techniques that were used in their recent paper.
In the broadest sense a spectrometer is any instrument that is used to measure the variation of a physical characteristic over a given range; i.e. a spectrum. The most ubiquitous type of spectrometer used for research are optical spectrometers; and when someone simply says ‘spectrometer’, without an additional qualifier, they are usually referring to an optical spectrometer and this diverse family of spectrometers is the focus of this article.
