310 nm, sub 800 ps picosecond pulsed LED!

Edinburgh Instruments has released the 310 nm picosecond pulsed LED with a sub-800 picosecond typical pulse width. This is first of many forthcoming new product releases to have such a low pulse width and is optimised for Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC).

The EPLED 310 is a compact, robust, maintenance free, fully integrated system supplied in a single package. It is pre-adjusted for an optimum pulse width of <800 ps with particular attention paid to reducing a long tail in the temporal profile.

EPLED diode lasers provide a cost-effective and reliable alternative to nanosecond flashlamps and expensive mode locked Titanium Sapphire femtosecond lasers.


Typical instrumentation in which the EPLED 310 may be used are fluorescence lifetime spectrometers and fluorescence lifetime multi-well plate readers for spectroscopy applications in biochemistry, biology, photophysics, semiconductor physics, bio-chemical assays etc. Customised versions of the pulsed LED can also be supplied for integration within various types of analytical instrumentation.
