When fluorescence spectra are measured in Edinburgh Instruments fluorescence spectrometers, two types of correction can be applied to the spectra; excitation and emission. In our previous blog post, we focused on emission correction and its role in the detection system. Now we turn our attention to excitation correction.

The FLS1000 Photoluminescence Spectrometer can be equipped with up to 5 different detectors (8 if two emission monochromators are present), and there is a wide range to choose from including analogue, high-speed detectors or NIR-sensitive photomultiplier tubes (PMTs). In this blog post we help you to select the best photomultiplier detector for your application, either when you first buy an instrument or when you are considering an upgrade.
Fluorescence lifetime standards are useful for checking the calibration of fluorescence lifetime spectrometers and accounting for the possible wavelength dependent response of detectors. View our handy guide to Fluorescence Lifetime Standards.
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.
Competition Time: Australian scientists have given this popular flower a fluorescent flair with a magical spritz. Win a bag bursting with Edinburgh Instruments goodies in this month’s easy to enter competition.
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.
Take a look at some of the research papers from February that have been published by customers using our fluorescence spectrometers.
