Rescheduled: Webinar about NIR Fluorescence Lifetime Spectroscopy
The title of the next installment of ID Quantique’s webinar series is “NIR Fluorescence Lifetime Spectroscopy for Nano-Materials Characterization and Biology”.
This presentation will now occur on Tuesday 13 October 2020 from 16:00 to 16:45 CET.
This webinar will describe a method at the heart of many applications: time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) and its use in near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence lifetime spectroscopy (FLS). FLS has many applications, including characterization of materials and biological research.
The technique exploits the ability to perform time-resolved, single-photon detection and is based on the correlation of one electronic pulse to another pulse, whereas either one or both pulses are generated by a single-photon detector.
It provides a sensitivity orders of magnitude higher than conventional analogue detection technique, is insensitive to source intensity variations and independent from single-photon pulse amplitude.
It can provide highly accurate fluorescence and phosphorescence lifetime measurements at much lower optical excitation levels and delivers faster results, allowing in-situ measurements and the analysis of live specimens.
This technique is particularly relevant in life and materials sciences, where a lot of information can be gained from lifetime measurements. For example, the study of:
- Quantum dots
- Perovskite-based materials for solar cells
- Nano-materials like carbon nanotubes and other 1-D and 2-D materials
- Diamond nitrogen-vacancy centers
- Other materials with natural or induced defects in their crystal structure
