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.
The new year is off to a strong start for customer publications with over 250 papers published using Edinburgh Instruments spectrometers during January. Here is a selection of the highlights from last month.
In the first of a new series on Advanced Measurements, we look at integrating spheres for absorption, reflection and absolute quantum yield.
We were delighted to talk to Prof. Hanson from Florida State University to find out about his work in the field of photophysics research and how he has been using our FLS1000 Photoluminescence Spectrometer and LP980 Transient Absorption Spectrometer.
