Name of national/international infrastructure this infrastructure belongs to

Part of Lund Nano-Characterization infrastructure.


TRPL infrastructure occupies one room and contains short-pulse laser and STREK-camera. The main purpose is to conduct time-resolved fluorescence (photoluminescence) measurements in a broad spectral range with sub-2 ps temporal resolution. Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting set-up is also part of the TRPL facilities.

Equipment and resources

TRPL is based on a 100 fs Ti:Sapphire laser Tsunami, Spectra-Physics, class IV laser. This laser is used as an excitation source for TRPL measurements. STREAK-camera can be used in 300-900 nm spectral range and in 2 ps to 2 ns time range. TCSPC system can use either Tsunami or 100 ps diode lasers for measurements from 100 ps to sub-ms time scale. Temperature-dependent studies down to 10 K are possible.
