  Application Note: Carrier Gases and their Differences

In Gas Chromatography there are three gases that are commonly used as a carrier gas: nitrogen, helium and hydrogen. The importance of carrier gas selection has been a discussion point amongst the users of Gas Chromatography for many years. When selecting the right carrier gas the user has to consider different parameters such as; price, performance, speed, analytical compatibility or just availability....

 

  Application Note: Gemstone Identification Using Raman Microscopy

Gemstones are pieces of mineral crystal cut and polished for use in the gem and jewellery industry. The term gemstone covers a wide variety of gems, roughly over 200 types of natural gemstones exist. Gemstones can be separated into two classifications: precious stones, such as sapphires, and semi-precious, such as garnet. The value of these stones depends on their colour, size, quality, and rarity...

 

  New Application Note: Raman Microscopy of Graphene

In this application note, an Edinburgh Instruments RM5 Raman Microscope is used to highlight how Raman microscopy an essential tool for any material scientist researching graphene. First reported in Science in 2004, graphene is commonly termed the “wonder material” due to its impressive properties. Geim and Novoselov, the two scientists behind the first isolation of graphene, were awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics for their pioneering research into graphene....

 

  Edinburgh Instruments Launches New RMS1000 Raman Microscope

Edinburgh Instruments is delighted to announce the launch of the new RMS1000 Raman Microscope designed and manufactured at their global headquarters in Scotland. The RMS1000 Raman Microscope is an open architecture, research grade confocal Raman Microscope. It has been designed to be adapted to almost any modern, state-of-the-art Raman application. This high-end research tool has been built with no compromises; resulting in a system that stands alone in both specification and ease of use....

 

  New Application Note - Identification of Microplastics Using Raman Spectroscopy

“Microplastics have invaded virtually every crevice on Earth” – a recent headline from a National Geographic article that highlights the global issue of the volume of microplastics in our environment. Microplastics are defined as small solid particles of less than 5 mm composed of polymers. Additionally, they may also contain additives, such as dyes, and impurities from manufacturing. They are either described as primary microplastics which are plastics intentionally made small (e.g. microbeads), or secondary microplastics...

 

  Edinburgh Instruments Ltd Announces New Partnership with Bio-Rad and Its KnowItAll Raman Spectral Identification Program

To mark the recent launch of Edinburgh Instruments new RM5 Raman Microscope, the company has today announced its partnership with Bio-Rad and its KnowItAll Raman Spectral Identification Partner Program. The partnership enables Edinburgh Instruments to give its customers access to the largest Raman Spectral Database and Raman Identification Software....

 

  Identifying Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence (TADF) using an FS5 Spectrofluorometer

Identifying-Thermally-Activated-Delayed-Fluorescence-FS5-SpectrofluorometerThermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF), also known as E-type delayed fluorescence, was first observed in 1924 by Francis Perrin.1,2 In 2012 it received a resurgence in attention, and exposure to a wider audience, when Professor Chihaya Adachi and colleagues at Kyushu University used the TADF mechanism to harvest triplet excitons in organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and create a new type....

 

  Electroluminescence and Photoluminescence Spectroscopy of a Phosphorescent Organic Light Emitting Diode

edinburgh instrumentsOur daily experience with organic (carbon based) materials such as polyethylene shopping bags and polyvinyl chloride insulation on cables suggests that they should be electrical insulators and this is indeed true for the majority of organic materials. However, there exists a small subset of organic materials with a particular electronic structure that are semiconducting in nature and can be used to make optoelectronic devices such as light emitting diodes...

 

  Photophysical Characterisation of Perovskite Quantum Dots

Semiconductor quantum dots possess an array of attractive properties, including; high photoluminescence quantum yields (PLQY), solution processability and highly tuneable band gaps. These properties make quantum dots ideal for optoelectronic devices such as light emitting diodes and semiconductor lasers where they serve as emitters or in photodiodes and solar cells where they serve equally well as light absorbers. In addition, their light emission properties also make them a promising new class of fluorescent probe for biomedical fluorescence imaging...

 

  Temperature-Dependent Absolute Photoluminescence Quantum Yield (PLQY) Measurements of a Halide Perovskite

Variation of the Photoluminescence Quantum Yield of CsPbBr3 Perovskite with TemperatureHalide perovskites are a promising class of materials for a wide variety of optoelectronic applications such as photovoltaics, light emitting diodes, lasers and optical sensing. They have received widespread attention due to their many attractive synthetic and photophysical properties, namely: solution processability, high tunability, long charge carrier lifetimes and high charge carrier mobilities...

 

  Studying the Carrier Lifetime in Perovskite Photovoltaic Cells Using the FLS1000

FLS 1000We are happy to share our latest application note where we demonstrate how the FLS1000 Photoluminescence Spectrometer can be used for studying the carrier lifetime in perovskite photovoltaic cells. We are pleased to have worked alongside the research group of Prof. Ifor Samuel at St Andrews University. Halide perovskite materials are revolutionising the field of solar cell research thanks to their low cost and high efficiency...

 

  Edinburgh Instruments New Middle-East Platform

Edinburgh Instruments parent company, Techcomp (Europe) Ltd (TEU), has acquired Dubai based AASolutions FZCo and re-named the business Techcomp (Middle East) FZCo (TME). This new Middle-East office enables Edinburgh Instruments to have a local platform in the region for supporting future sales and service requirements. In addition, TME will offer sales and service support for other leading Techcomp brands such as Scion Instruments...

 

  FS5 Sample Cassettes Undergo Facelift

Edinburgh Instruments is excited to share the latest upgrades to our FS5 Sample Cassettes range. The easy-to-use cassettes see improvements that provide users ease of access, and time-saving features that makes operation more straightforward. With the use of a new, harder wearing material, the cassettes include a ‘Plug n Play’ feature that allows our Fluoracle Software to automatically recognise which measurement module is being used....
