Fluorometer with Fluorescence Lifetime Capabilities

Spex® FluoroLog® Tau-3 (Horiba)

The Fluorolog-Tau3 performs fluorescence measurements in steady-state and dynamic (frequency domain) mode.

In the frequency domain, the excitation source has its intensity modulated at a high frequency. As a result, the sample's emission is also modulated, but out of phase with the excitation. Both the phase-difference and the modulation of the emission are directly linked to lifetime.

The temperature is controlled with a peltier unit. Alternatively, a water bath is also available.

The instrument uses the DataMax software for acquisition and analysis of the data.
