Combined Spectrometer / Microscope 

Time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy is a valuable tool for investigating excited state dynamics in semiconductors.

By interfacing a spectrometer like the FluoTime 300 with a microscope such as the MicroTime 100, one can easily record time-, space-, and spectrally resolved luminescence spectra.
