Recording Photoluminescence of Compounds

Inorganic−organic hybrid compounds are attracting global attention. The luminescence characteristics, coupled with good thermal- and photo-stability, render these materials possible candidates for applications in energy-efficient lighting devices. A home-built system consisting of PHAROS and ORPHEUS from Light Conversion recorded the photoluminescence of the compounds. PHAROS is a femtosecond laser system combining millijoule pulse energies and high average powers. … Continue reading

UltraFlat Dichroics for Distortion-Free Reflection

UltraFlat Dichroics from Chroma Technology provide superior surface flatness for distortion-free reflection. Dichroic beamsplitters (mirrors) are used as light guiding optics that reflect a specified range(s) of wavelengths and transmit a different specified range(s) of wavelengths at a specified AOI, typically 45 degrees. Most of Chroma’s catalog dichroics are intended for use at 45 degrees AOI. … Continue reading
