Overview of ChronosBH

ChronosBH is a time-domain (TCSCP) compact spectrometer for decay time measurements over a wide time scale, from picosecond to seconds. The instrument design features a T-format geometry for simultaneous acquisition on two emission channels. A variety of pulsed light sources can be coupled to ChronosBH including laser diodes, supercontinuum laser and multiphoton lasers. Detectors options include fast PMTs, hybrid PMTs and GaAs PMT. The instrument can be upgraded to steady-state fluorescence measurements using a xenon arc lamp.

The ChronosBH operations are fully automated; instrument control, data acquisition and processing are done through Vinci, the Multi-dimentional Spectroscopy software.

Upgradeable

  • Flexible instrument configuration with a variety of light sources
  • A compact footprint, T-format geometry for simultaneous measurements on two channels
  • Lifetime measurements from the picosecond to the second
  • Full automation of instrument components including: cuvette holder, polarizers, shutters, filterwheel, monochromators and stirrers
  • PC-controlled integration of temperature bath, titrator, stopped-flow apparatus and pressure pump
  • Upgradable to include steady-state measurements
  • Parallel beam optical design for fast and precise polarization measurements

Key Characteristics of Data Acquisition Via Time-Domain

  • Is a more direct way of measuring lifetime
  • Requires no reference but measurement of an instrument response function (IRF)
  • Anisotropy decay measurements require two separate measurements at each plane of polarization
