FS5 FS5 – Exceptional Instrument Sensitivity The FS5 is designed to meet the highest measurement specifications in the research and analytical markets. To achieve optimal sensitivity, resolution, and acquisition speed, we engineered an air-sealed excitation path to enhance the excitation power in the UV, select only the optimal performance photomultipliers in temperature stabilised housings, utilise an optical design that includes plane, spherical, toroidal, ellipsoidal mirrors and optimised mirror coatings; the FS5 is truly unrivalled in its spectral performance and sensitivity. Not only...

Thorough calibration procedures are used to guarantee correct data representation. Spectral calibration is used to ensure wavelength accuracy and repeatability and photometric calibration is used to ensure presentation of true spectra without distortion of instrumental throughput functions. Traceable standards from NIST and BAM are used for calibration throughout the full wavelength coverage to verify calibration, in photons per unit bandwidth, of recorded spectra. The FS5 delivers data you can trust and utilise for high impact results in the research and analytical markets. NIST standards...

Measurement Examples Emission Scans - with temperature dependence Rhodamine B, unlike other Rhodamine derivatives, has a chemical structure that is not entirely rigid. The diethylamino groups are interacting with the solvent and their mobility is therefore coupled to the solvent temperature. This causes the fluorescence intensity to have a strong dependence on the sample temperature. The example shows this effect, measured with the TE cooled sample holder. Rhodamine B in water, OD525 = 0.1 Spectral bandwidth: 2.5 nm, dwell time: 0.1 s Temp Accuracy Band: 0.5ºC, Temp Stabilisation Time: 10...

Measurements of absolute fluorescence quantum yield Fluorescence quantum yields can be measured by using the optional integrating sphere. The absolute method requires two measurements; the number of absorbed photons and the number of the emitted photons. The number of absorbed photons of a sample is determined by the reduction of the light scatter compared to a blank measurement. The quantum yield calculation is made using a wizard within the operating software. Quinine bisulphate in perchloric acid. The red curve shows the scan over the excitation scatter at 350 nm and the emission of the...

Upgrade Options The upgrade options are modifications or additions to the main body of the FS5. All upgrades are best installed at the time of manufacture, but they can also be retro-fitted by a qualified service engineer during an on-site visit. All the standard features of the FS5 are retained when an upgrade option has been added. Many of the options can be combined. This offers outstanding flexibility for an instrument of this class.

Measurement of Lifetimes in Microsecond to Second Range The instrument has all the features of the standard FS5, plus the capability of long lifetime (>5 ms) measurements for the time-resolved measurement of strong phosphors and rare earth emissions. The changeover between the standard continuous light source and the pulsed xenon flash lamp is software controlled and the acquisition mode automatically changes from standard photon counting to time-resolved photon counting. The software incorporates fitting and reconvolution analysis for lifetime evaluation. MCS measurements in the...
