We are continuously expanding the lab. Currently we have three fluorescence microscopes (one wide field and two confocal) and a range of CW and pulsed lasers, covering the visible region. We also have a pulsed continuum laser. One of the confocal microscopes is equipped with a piezoelectric scanner, 2 avalanche photodiodes (APD) for single molecule fluorescence measurements and a Princeton Spectrograph to acquire fluorescence as well as Raman spectra. Signal from the APDs are collected by a Becker & Hickl SPC-830 time-correlated single photon counting card which allows to reconstruct fluorescence decay time profiles, intensity traces and intensity correlation (e.g. like F.C.S.)
