Ultima™ Extreme

Overview

The fully integrated supercontinuum white light laser-powered lifetime fluorometer.

In the Ultima Extreme, we seamlessly combine our fluorometer with the high intensity and broad wavelength range of a supercontinuum laser.

What is a supercontinuum laser, also known as a white light laser? It is a bright source that, unlike other lasers, light over a broad spectral range, from just above 400 nm to over 2 µm. Because of this range and pulse width characteristics, in the range of 10s of picoseconds or longer, it makes an excellent source option for TCSPC measurements.

WHY GO EXTREME ?

Lifetime: Allows you to choose any excitation wavelength.

It’s like having infinite Deltadiodes!

Features

  • Select any excitation wavelength from 400nm to over 2 µm for lifetime measurements with the 300-1200nm excitation monochromator or filters. Wavelengths below 430 nm can still be addressed using our existing DeltaDiodes, or optional doubler.
  • Select pulsing frequency from 100 kHz – 20 MHz (using required pulse picker)

    • Complete optical, mechanical and software integration:
    • Adapter for use with excitation monochromator
    • Complete delay and signaling integration for synchronization
    • Control of wavelength, and pulse frequency directly from DataStation Software, in addition to monitoring the laser power.                    

  • Large sample compartment (compatible with cryostats)
  • Cell holder with facility for recirculating liquid temperature control
  • Motorized excitation optics with UV-grade fused silica lenses, filter and mount for polarizer*: a wide choice of interchangeable laser diode and LED-based excitation sources are available as accessories
  • Motorized emission optics with UV-grade fused silica lenses, filter and mount for polarizer*
  • Emission monochromator: TDM-1200 Seya-Namioka type, featuring motorized wavelength drive (300 nm to 1200 nm), integral safety shutters interlocked to lid of sample compartment, and synchronized adjustable slits (1 nm to 32 nm)
  • Emission monochromator: TDM-800 Seya-Namioka type, featuring motorized wavelength drive (200 nm to 800 nm), integral safety shutters interlocked to lid of sample compartment, and synchronized adjustable slits (1 nm to 32 nm)
  • R3809-50 MCP-PMT detector in cooled housing (interlocked with lid of sample compartment) with close-coupled CFD-2G-A picosecond timing amplifier/discriminator and Fluoro3PS ultra-stable HV detector power supply.
  • FluoroHub A+ timing electronics - measures picoseconds to seconds (depending on excitation source)
  • All cables and interconnections
  • System supplied on a 37 x 70 cm baseplate

*Filters and polarizers are optional
