Photoluminescence of photoactive materials workshop | Edinburgh Instruments

Workshop on the Photoluminescence Analysis of Photoactive Materials

We are delighted to announce that we will be sponsoring a workshop on the photoluminescence analysis of photoactice materials at Swansea University on 23rd May.

Photoluminescence spectroscopy is a powerful tool to analyse material’s response to light absorption and estimate bandgap energy, excited state lifetimes, charge transfer reactions and electron diffusion in crystals, films and solutions. It is widely used for the development of a broad range of technologies ranging from bio-labelling to semiconductors. This half-day workshop will cover the fundamental principles of photoluminescence spectroscopy techniques and provide a practical training session on the equipment available at SPECIFIC IKC. Experts from Edinburgh Instruments Ltd along with researchers from Swansea University will deliver a series of engaging seminars aiming to bring together researchers across the university with a potential interest in using photoluminescence techniques for their research.
