Frequently Asked Questions

How to choose your lasers for Raman spectroscopy

Which lasers do you need for Raman spectroscopy? Exploring the positives and negatives of the three laser regions used in Raman spectroscopy: UV, visible, and near-infrared, we review the considerations to be made for optimising a Raman system to your application needs!

Investigating Efficiency Roll-Off in Quantum Dot LEDs (QLEDs) using the FS5 Spectrofluorometer

Quantum dot light emitting diodes (QLEDs) have attracted immense research interest from both academia and industry due to their desirable display properties. The linewidth of the emission from quantum dots (QDs) is significantly narrower than from organic molecules which means that QLEDs can potentially offer displays with higher colour gamut than OLEDs.

What is Upconversion?

Photon upconversion is the sequential absorption of two or more long wavelength photons leading to the emission of a photon with a shorter wavelength.

What is Raman Spectroscopy?

What is Raman Spectroscopy? It is an analytical technique where scattered light is used to measure the vibrational energy modes of a sample.

UVA UVB Transmittance of Sunglasses

If you are purchasing cheaper sunglasses you run the risk of having a tinted lenses, which only blocks the visible light and let through the eye damaging UV. Using the DS5 Spectrophotometer, Edinburgh Instruments scientists test the durability of sunglasses.

The Beer-Lambert Law

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.
