Our equipment allows us to measure luminescence spectra in the UV,Vis,IR spectral region, time resolved spectra, lifetime measurement (tmin ~20ns). we use different excitation sources.
Devices used in measurement :

1. Monochromator - JobinYvon THR1000 with exchangable gratings  detectors (R928, R406 - look here for spectral characteristics of photodetectors). It allows us to measure in the 300-1150 nm (33000-8000cm-1) region with the 0.01 nm resolution.
2. Fast and miniature CCD spectrophotometers:
      OceanOptics SD2000 (340-1000nm spectral range, ~0.3 nm resolution)
      Avantes (350-1000nm spectral range, ~0.35 nm resolution)
3. Two channel photon counter SR400 Standford for time resolved spectra
4. Two channel digital oscilloscopes:
      Tektronix TDS 380 400MHz
      LeCroy WaveSurfer 400
5.  Laser beam power meter Coherent - Field Master and 2 heads LM-2 ( 0.4-1.1 mm spectral range, Pmax = 50 mW) and LM-10 (0.25-11 mm spectral range, Pmax = 10W)
6. Criocooler APD Cryiogenics HC-2, down to 10K, for absorption and emission measurements in controlable temperature conditions
7. Low-voltage cathodoluminscent measuring device
