Sophisticated Fluorescence Spectrometer (SFS) (Funded by DST PURSE, Govt. of India)

Instrument Details



The FLS1000 combined steady state and phosphorescence lifetime spectrometer is a modular system for measuring steady state spectra in the UV-VIS-NIR spectral range, together with phosphorescence decays in the time range between 1 μs and 10 seconds using the technique of Multi-Channel Scaling. The instrument sets the standards in both steady state and time-resolved spectroscopy: The system demonstrates unmatched sensitivity and can be configured for spectral measurements from the ultraviolet to the mid-infrared spectral range, and for lifetime measurements spanning time resolutions over 12 orders of magnitude from picoseconds to seconds.


It is a state-of-the-art, modular photoluminescence spectrometer for the most demanding applications in Photophysics, Photochemistry, Material Sciences and Life Sciences.
