Time-resolved Photoluminescence (Lifetime)

Add Time-resolved Photoluminescence or lifetime point and imaging measurement to any SMS system with the Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) option. Working in the time domain removes the confounding influences of concentration and photobleaching, as well as offering insights into temporal phenomena, such as carrier dynamics in photovoltaics and defects in semiconductors. With its industry-leading true 100 MHz system operation, the SMS TCSPC option has fast acquisition rates, with decays acquired in mere milliseconds, allowing for TCSPC lifetime dynamic measurements. Select from our current catalog of over 70 compact pulsed light sources, with more being added all the time.

Time-resolved (Lifetime) Imaging - FLIM With its latest FiPho TCSPC electronics, the SMS offers spatially-resolved lifetime or time-resolved photoluminescence characterization, enabling enhancement and complementary insights to steady state photoluminescence measurements, especially for semiconductor characterization.
