PicoQuant Combines Fluorescence Spectroscopy And Microscopy

New fibre-coupling sample holder simplifies recording of space-resolved and time-resolved emission spectra 

 

PicoQuant, a German research and development company in the field of optoelectronics, has released a new fibre coupling sample holder for the modular time-resolved spectrometer FluoTime 300. 

According to the company, this holder makes it possible to interface the system with a microscope such as the MicroTime 100. This set-up easily allows users to record time- and space-resolved emission spectra from any sample mounted in the microscope.

Time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy is used for investigating excited state dynamics in molecules, complexes, or semiconductors. Expanding the capabilities of a spectrometer with a microscope's ability to probe and scan small areas provides exciting opportunities for investigating the spatial dependence of luminescence behavior in a large variety of samples, says PicoQuant. 

As an example, this combination allows localising and characterising structural defects in semiconductor materials such as CIGS used in solar cell research.

PicoQuant says that when equipped with hybrid detectors, versatile Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) cards with optional longer time ranges, and pulsed lasers capable of working in burst mode, the set-up offers a combined solution covering most of the demands of either high time, spectral, or spatial resolution in many fields.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
