Professional Femtosecond Transient Absorption Spectrometer


ExciPro is the first on the market femtosecond transient absorption pump-probe spectrometer. Two linear image sensors are placed in the focal in the focal plane of an imaging spectrograph to measure probe and reference spectra originating from femtosecond white light continuum generator. The reference channel is used in transient absorption measurements to get best optical density (OD) changes sensitivity. New completely computer-controlled ExciPro-XL is available with compact electronics and LabVIEW based data acquisition software.
