When fluorescence spectra are measured in Edinburgh Instruments fluorescence spectrometers, two types of correction can be applied to the spectra; excitation and emission correction. In this blog post we focus on the role of emission correction and discuss why it is required, how it is implemented, and the effect it has on the shape of fluorescence spectra.

We were delighted to see that our customer, Prof. Hongmei Su at Beijing Normal University, had a research paper featured in a recent publication in JACS.1. One of the lines of Prof. Su’s work is the photochemistry of DNA and RNA damage. DNA damage can be caused by reactive species such as radicals or by radiation, and is related to cancer and degenerative diseases. Understanding the mechanisms of damage is the first step towards prevention. Read our latest customer highlight and download Prof. Su’s research paper.
