Mechanism of DNA damage studied by transient absorption spectroscopy

We were delighted to see that our customer, Prof. Hongmei Su at Beijing Normal University, had a research paper featured in a recent publication in JACS.1. One of the lines of Prof. Su’s work is the photochemistry of DNA and RNA damage. DNA damage can be caused by reactive species such as radicals or by radiation, and is related to

Perovskite Research from Edinburgh Instruments

With perovskite being such a hot topic at the moment Halide perovskite photovoltaic cells have attracted tremendous attention due to the rapid rise in solar cell efficiencies, and their potential for providing high-efficiency low-cost solar power. In this blog post we highlight our recent application notes which focus on perovskites and their reactions to various photoluminescence spectroscopy measurements.

Photosynthesis in Plants: Holly

We are lucky to have some holly just outside our factory in Scotland which makes us feel Christmassy all year round. Taking advantage of this we have measured the fluorescence quantum yield of its leaves as a function of temperature, using an FLS1000 with a Cryosphere accessory.

Publication Highlight: Upconverting Nanoparticles (UCNP) for Photodynamic Therapy Treatment of Tumors

In this blog post we highlight a recent paper by Professor Fiorenzo Vetrone, Small and Bright Lithium-Based Upconverting Nanoparticles (UCNP), which was published in JACS. In this paper a new synthesis route for small and efficient upconverting nanoparticles was reported and their properties optimised with the aid of an Edinburgh Instruments FLS980 Photoluminescence Spectrometer. The significance of Prof. Vetrone’s work
