As we continue to highlight our staff during our 50th Anniversary celebrations, we shine a light on Chris Sprought, our Diode laser production manager. As he celebrates 10 years with the company we take a look at his role and also some of his interesting hobbies outside of work...
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.
To celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science we take time to catch-up with Angela Flack, our Applications Scientist. Here she reveals what a typical day looks like for her working within Raman Spectroscopy at Edinburgh Instruments.
As we enter 2021 we are delighted to be celebrating Edinburgh Instruments 50th Anniversary. Join us in the celebration and get to know our hard working staff. To start the celebration we caught up with Glen Donaldson, find out what interesting hobbies he has...
Kasha’s Rule is named after the American molecular spectroscopist Michael Kasha and is one of the main principles in fluorescence spectroscopy. This article explores the results of Kasha's seminal paper “Characterization of Electronic Transitions in Complex Molecules". Learn more about this pioneer of fluorescence spectroscopy.
As Burns Night approaches the Applications team wondered what a dram would look like when a laser is shone onto it, see what happens and find out why we need to ensure the safety of whisky at all times.
In this article, the definitions of transmittance and absorbance of light by a substance are first introduced followed by an explanation of the Beer-Lambert Law.

What is Raman Spectroscopy? It is an analytical technique where scattered light is used to measure the vibrational energy modes of a sample.
We are delighted to announce the next in our series of popular webinars - “Raman Spectroscopy of Polymers”. This webinar session will be taking place at 9am and 4pm GMT on the 19th November.
