Quantum Dot Demo

Quantum dots (QDs) are semiconductor particles which are a few nanometers in size and are used extensively in nanotechnology due to their optical and electronic properties.  When excited with UV light, these particles fluoresce as a function of their size and shape.  The larger the quantum dot, the longer the emission wavelength it produces.  Quantum dots are being used in LEDs, solar cells, medical imaging, lasers and a variety of other nanotechnologies.

To demonstrate the capabilities of our new AvaSpec-ULS2048X64TEC-EVO spectrometer, Avantes will excite fluorescence in some organic quantum dots. This instrument is optimized for high-sensitivity in a broadband configuration to measure the fluorescence and absorbance of quantum dots in a cuvette holder. The cuvette will be held in a qpod, allowing us to measure the fluorescence and absorbance simultaneously with the use of a beam splitter.

Filter and Optics Transmission Demo

Watch the AvaSpec-ULS2048CL-EVO demonstrate the effects of filters on the transmission profile in real time. We will be using an integrating sphere on an optical rail setup to measure the transmission of various filters, the diffuse reflection of multiple samples, and irradiance measurements with lasers. The AvaSpec-ULS2048CL-EVO with a broadband configuration will be paired with an inline fiber optic switch (FOS-INL).
