Component Close-Up: Constant Fraction Discrimination

Time-Correlated Single-Photon Counting receives non-uniform pulses from the excitation source and the sample, so how do we ensure the timing electronics precisely record arrival time? Discover how constant fraction discrimination enables accurate timing despite pulse fluctuations and system noise.

Map of the Month – Document Forgery

The forgery of documents is a common problem for the police, customs officials, and historians, and they are very difficult to detect by eye. Here we show how photoluminescence spectroscopy can be used to detect an ink forgery without damaging the sample.
