FLS1000 Spectrometer

For both fundamental research and routine laboratory applications, the FLS1000 Spectrometer sets the standard in both steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy. The Spectrometer is perfect for those studying photophysics, photochemistry, biophysics, biochemistry, material or life sciences.

The system is a modular fluorescence and phosphorescence spectrometer for measuring spectra from the ultraviolet to the mid-infrared spectral range (up to 5,500 nm), and lifetimes spanning from picoseconds to seconds.

The FLS1000 will enable you to reliably and accurately measure luminescence spectra and kinetics using state-of-the-art sources, detectors, acquisition techniques, quality optics and precision mechanics. It also includes a large sample chamber that can fit practically any type of sample accessory.

High sensitivity is a prerequisite for measurements of low sample concentrations, small sample volumes or low sample quantum yields. The instrument has a guaranteed sensitivity of >30,000:1 (optional >35,000:1) for the standard water Raman measurement using the SQRT method that remains unmatched in the industry.

The FL1000 has a USB interface and all modes of operation are controlled by one data acquisition module and all-inclusive Fluoracle software package for data acquisition and analysis. In order to maintain accurate and precise measurements the light source, detector, grating, slits, polarizers are all computer-controlled.

Excitation Sources

The 450 W ozone free xenon arc lamp covers a range of 230 nm to >1000 nm for steady state measurements and comes standard with the FL1000. In addition to this, a variety of other sources can be integrated including microsecond flashlamps, nanosecond flashlamp, pulsed diode lasers (EPL Series), pulsed light emitting diodes (EPLED Series), supercontinuum lasers, Ti:sapphire lasers, Q-switched solid state lasers and OPOs, dye lasers, and infrared CW and pulsed lasers for up-conversion measurements.


Single and double grating Czerny-Turner monochromators are available in the FLS1000 with 325 mm (or 2 x 325 mm) focal length, high optical throughput, excellent stray light rejection and low temporal dispersion. The monochromators have triple grating turrets with up to three gratings on each turret and computer-controlled slits.


A full range of detector options are available to increase the range of spectral coverage. This can also reduce the instrumental response width for lifetime measurements. This instrument comes standard with a PMT-900 detector in cooled housing which covers a range from 185 nm – 900 nm, in TCSPC mode the instrumental response width is approximately 600 ps. It should be noted that, optional detectors include: high speed PMTs in a cooled housing with instrument response <200 ps, MCP-PMT in cooled housings with a response <25 ps, NIR-PMTs to cover spectral ranges out to 1700 nm with photon counting sensitivity and speed, InGaAs detectors with spectral coverage up to ~1.65 μm, 2.05 um and 2.55 μm, InAs and InSb detectors to cover up to 5.50 μm.
