New Quantaurus-Tau - measurement of fluorescence lifetimes

(PresseBox) (Herrsching, ) Hamamatsu Photonics introduces the new Quantaurus series of compact instruments for measuring properties of photoluminescent materials such as fluorescent probes, LED phosphors, organic metal complexes, OLED materials, and quantum dots.

The Quantaurus-QY measures quantum yields faster and easier than the traditional relative method.

The new Quantaurus-Tau quickly and easily measures fluorescence lifetimes of light emitting materials in thin film, powder, solid, or liquid form from sub-nanoseconds to milliseconds with single-photon-counting sensitivity. Liquid samples can be cooled down to -196°C. Seven LEDs allow sample excitation from 280 nm to 630 nm.

The two available models cover a spectral range from 300 nm to 800 nm (C11367-11) and from 380 nm to 1030 nm (C11367-12). As the whole system is software controlled, operation is simple and intuitive. The dedicated software includes a variety of measurement and analysis functions and allows fitting of up to 5 exponentials.

Furthermore, Quantaurus-Tau features optional add-ons for performing phosphorescence measurements.
