The ultra-fast spectroscopy laboratory allows performing time-resolved absorption and emission measurements with a time resolution of 190 femtoseconds (fs) over a broad temporal range (190 fs - 1 millisecond). Measurements can be carried out in the 350-850nm spectral range. 

Instrumental disponible

  • Sistema de excitación láser ultra-rápido formado por un láser pulsado PHAROS (Light Conversion) (longitud de onda de emisión 1030nm, tasa de repetición 1kHz y duración de pulso 190fs) y un amplificador paramétrico (OPA) ORPHEUS (Light Conversion) que produce pulsos de duración y tasa de repetición iguales al PHAROS pero con una longitud de onda sintonizable en el rango 350-2500nm.
  • Espectrómetros de absorción para el rango temporal 190fs-8ns (HELIOS, Ultrafast Systems) y 2ns-1ms (EOS, Ultrafast Systems). Ambos sistemas permiten realizar medidas en el rango espectral 350-1100nm con una resolución de 2nm.

    Raman spectroscopy is based on a photonic process in which the incident radiation is dis-persed by the sample. This latter is perturbed leading to vibrational and rotational transitions. In general, the Raman spectrum is interpreted like a vibrational one, providing information very similar to the infrared spectroscopy, although the Raman active vibrations are not always the same as those excited with infrared radiation. A Raman vibration mode is active if there is a change of polarizability of the chemical bonds or the considered molecule, which in turn results in the generation of induced dipolar momentam. Its application fields are very broad: semiconductors, carbon compounds (graphite, diamond, nanotubes, fibers…), catalysts, pigments, etc.

    Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) is based on the selective absorption of the infrared radiation by the materials. This absorption means a change in the vibrational energy of the chemical bonds, whenever it occurs a change in the polarization. The result is a spectrum showing the absorbed or transmitted radiation as a function of the wavenumber of the radiation, which can be assigned to the corresponding chemical bound.

    The equipment at the ICMS works in a wavenumber range from 5000 to 250 cm-1 (CsI optic), and can operate with a gas purge or in vacuum. It is equipped with several accessories to do Diffuse Reflectance (DRIFT), Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) or Specular Reflectance. It has got an Infrared Microscope with a lateral resolution of 10 µm.

    Available Equipment

    • JASCO FT/IR-6200 IRT-5000
