Edinburgh FS5 spectrofluorometer can be used to acquire photoluminescence spectra of solid and liquid samples at 250-800 nm range. It is equipped with a 150 W continuous Wave Xenon Lamp source for excitation; emission measurements are taken using a Hamamatsu R928P photomultiplier tube. Since Edinburgh FS5 spectrofluorometer is equipped with an integrating sphere module, it can also be used to measure the photoluminescence quantum yields of solid and liquid samples.

Compact fluorescence /phosphorescence lifetime instrument for measuring samples in solution or in the solid-state. For more information, contact Linda Shimizu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2 medium pressure 450 W Mercury arc U.V. lamps in safety cabinets and a Rayonet photoreactor with two sets of lamps (low wavelength ~ 260 nm, and higher wavelength ~360 nm). Basic flow cells for UV-processes. For more information, contact Linda Shimizu at email@example.com.
This instrument is capable of a wide range of electroanalytical techniques and the rotator allows for experiment under controlled convection with real time electrocatalytic product monitoring. It is located in the Horizon 1 building, room 031. For more information, contact Aaron Vannucci at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 803-576-6071.
