28.03.2013 Visit of American Scientists

This week the group of foreign scientists from Department of Chemistry, Bowling green State University, Ohio, USA has visited us. The main point of the visit was establishing scientific relationships. To make the acquaintance easier the excursion to the resource center was organized.

18.03.2013 Measurement of the luminescence lifetime with the nanosecond range using the Fluorolog-3 spectrofluorimeter

The luminescence lifetime of the fluorescein solution was measured using the Fluorolog-3spectrofluorimeter. . The luminescence excitation of the sample was generated by the LED with 495 nm wavelength and with the pulse duration less than 1.5 ns. The luminescence was obtained at the wavelength λem=517 nm. Received luminescence lifetime is τ=3.96±0.01 ns (table lifetime of the fluorescein is 4.0 ns).
