Fluorescence Spectroscopy

Instrument: Edinburgh Instruments FLS980-xs2


Like other spectroscopic techniques fluorescence spectroscopy uses the result of interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter to provide insight into the chemical composition of the matter. In the case of fluorescence spectroscopy, ultraviolet or visible light is used to excite a sample and the absorbance or emitted light is used to characterise the fluorophore present.

The technique can be used to quantify an analyte of interest as well as to observe changes to a fluorescent molecule.
