DektakXT
DektakXT
  • Bruker Dektak XT profilometer to determine layer thickness and (large scale) roughness. Computer controlled XY table, vertical resolution down to nanometer scale, horizontal range μm - cm
PL set-up
PL set-up
  • Photoluminescence (PL) set-up: Titanium sapphire laser (Mira900) based femtosecond laser excitation. Steady state and time resolved (up to 1 ps resolution) measurements in the visible and NIR spectral range thanks to sets of Hamamatsu streak cameras and steady state detectors. The set-up is equipped with a second and third harmonic generator and it can be coupled to the confocal microscope.
Nikon Eclipse Ti
Nikon Eclipse Ti
  • Nikon Eclipse Ti confocal inverted microscope
Pump probe set-up
Pump probe set-up
  • Self-built transient absorption set-up based on a supercontinuum laser source and an auto-balanced photodetector. The laser covers a spectral range from 400 to 1400 nm with an overall time resolution of around 10 ps. A maximum delay of 6 ns is possible in the current configuration. Also see our publication .
