Optical spectroscopy

The department is equipped with a wide and varied range of instruments for optical spectroscopy, including dedicated CD and time-resolved fluorescence equipment.

CD - Applied Photophysics Chirascan-plus

This equipment is currently located in A75, with access available via Dr. Geoffrey Akien, and bookable here. David Townsend is currently providing training for use of this instrument.

Lifetime fluorescence

Picoquant FluoTime 300 and Picoquant MicroTime 200 instruments are available for lifetime fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy, respectively. Contact Dr. Lefteris Danos if you are interested in using this equipment.

UV-vis and Infra-red

The department is also equipped with a wide-range of more conventional UV-vis and IR, but these do not have dedicated booking systems.
