    Equipments Details


    Photoluminescence spectroscopy, often referred to as PL, is when light energy, or photons, stimulate the emission of a photon from any matter. It is a non-contact, nondestructive method of probing materials. In essence, light is directed onto a sample, where it is absorbed and where a process called photo-excitation can occur. The photo-excitation causes the material to jump to a higher electronic state, and will then release energy, (photons) as it relaxes and returns to back to a lower energy level. The emission of light or luminescence through this process is photoluminescence.
    HORIBA Scientific’s MicOS merges microscopy and spectroscopy, to provide optimal coupling from the sample all the way to the detector. Available down- or side-looking configurations for side-emitting devices or upright cryostats give you flexible sample access. An optional, fully automated stage for mapping and sample-positioning is available. The MicOS offers a flexible platform for the use of multiple lasers for sample excitation. The system includes a vision camera so you always see what you are measuring.
