The Source

The xenon source that supplies prime UV performance is focused onto the entrance slit of the excitation monochromator with an elliptical mirror. Besides ensuring efficient collection, the reflective surface keeps all wavelengths focused on the slit.

As an option an additional, software-selectable, xenon flash lamp can be fitted to enable phosphorescence studies.

A spectrofluorometer is an instrument which takes advantage of fluorescent properties of some compounds to provide information regarding their concentration and chemical environment in a sample. A certain excitation wavelength is selected, and the emission is observed either at a single wavelength, or a scan is performed to record the intensity versus wavelength, also called an emission spectra.
