Optical Spectroscopy

Optical spectroscopy is an experimental technique providing with an information on the electronic structure of materials through the detection of the material response on the light illumination. The light has usually a wavelength from deep ultra violet (UV) to far infra red (FIR) range.

Our laboratory is equipped with modern confocal microscope with spectrometer "Nanofinder-S", working in the range of 400-850 nm and allowing to use up to three excitation sources. Besides, we collaborate with other groups and synchrotron radiation centers, thus expanding our possibilities to both UV and IR-FIR ranges.

We possess also a miniature ThorLabs SP1 fiber optic (SMA-type) spectrometer (400-800 nm), which connects directly to the parallel port of the PC computer and can be used for luminescence measurements.
