The Lifespec II is a compact, fully integrated, high performance, time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) fluorescence lifetime spectrometer designed for use with high repetition rate pulsed femtosecond and picosecond lasers. The system is a fully automated solution, combining hardware and software in a single package for fundamental research and routine laboratory applications. Its zero temporal dispersion optics, using double-monochromators in subtractive mode, sets the standard for technical performance in measuring ultra-fast decays.
This is the only turn-key lifetime system on the market featuring a subtractive double-monochromator, which provides for zero temporal dispersion and allows the instrument to measure fluorescence lifetimes down to 5 ps with ultrafast lasers.
the powerful F980 software controls all the hardware and also analyses the raw data. With reconvolution, the software can reliably measure fluorescence lifetimes down to a tenth of the instrument response function.
Data acquisition modes range from fluorescence lifetime decay acquisitions and time-resolved spectra to automated time-resolved anisotropy measurements and automated temperature maps. The LifeSpec II in the standard configuration is supplied with one detector, however, additional detectors can be added. The LifeSpec II requires at least one picosecond pulsed diode laser (EPL Series), pulsed LED (EPLED Series), supercontinuum laser or Ti:Sapphire laser (with suitable pulse picker) for operation.
