CRAIC Technologies, an innovator of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis solutions, is proud to announce the introduction of ultraviolet lasers sources for use with the 20/30 PV microspectrophotometer. The major application will be to serve as an excitation source for fluorescence and photoluminescence (PL) microspectroscopy. Both methods require intense light sources and by exciting in the ultraviolet, more materials can be caused to emit photons via a luminescent process.
The UV lasers can be used either as powerful light sources for fluorescence microspectroscopy or can be incorporated in the new Photoluminescence package from CRAIC Technologies. The UV laser output is focused onto a microscopic sample area and the light that is emitted from that area is collected and measured by the 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer. The fluorescence or photoluminescence spectra are then analyzed.
