Application Note: Energy Transfer in a Liquid Scintillator Investigated using Time-Resolved X-ray Excited Luminescence Spectroscopy

Liquid scintillator detectors are widely utilised in neutrino and astroparticle detection experiments. One liquid scintillator that is increasingly being used in large scale detection experiments is linear alkylbenzene (LAB). LAB is an attractive scintillator due to its low cost, high flash point and low toxicity; making it easier to handle than previously used toxic and flammable organic solvents. LAB is commonly used together with the fluor 2,5-diphenyloxazole (PPO) which increases luminescence yield and shifts the luminescence to longer wavelengths.In this application note the properties of the liquid scintillator system LAB/PPO are investigated using time-resolved X-ray excited luminescence spectroscopy with the FLS1000 and XS1 X-ray Sample Chamber.

Application Note: Confocal Raman and Photoluminescence Microscopy for Forensic Investigations

Forensic investigations often study extremely small samples which may need analysed by multiple techniques. Confocal Raman and Photoluminescence (PL) Microscopy are well-suited techniques for dealing with such samples. This application note details how Raman and PL microscopy can be used as an analysis tool in any forensic laboratory.

TADF: What is Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence?

Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence (TADF) is a mechanism for enhancing the efficiency of Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) (by harvesting triplet excitors). TADF has therefore attracted widespread interest in the OLED community and research into TADF and OLEDS is a popular application of our FS5 and FL1000 photoluminescence spectrometers.
