Summary

In 2018 the Unit has improved the capacities of the fluorescence lifetime instrument LifespecII by renewing its electronic part. The renewed instrument is able to run measurements down to 10µs. The device was also tuned-up with new calibrants and different laser sources and temporal windows.

The Unit output in terms of experiments run during 2018 is shown in the chart:
