For measuring photoluminescence (PL) lifetime of PV materials

The compact NIR PL lifetime spectrometer C12132 series is designed for measuring photoluminescence (PL) spectrum and PL lifetime in the NIR region.
Applicable to measure PL lifetime and PL spectrum of material which is related to the conversion efficiency of solar cell, PL lifetime of organic compound and PL spectrum of singlet oxygen.

The C12132-37 complies with laser class 3B.It is upgradable for multipoint measurement with optical fibers.


・Lifetime measurement from VIS to NIR (up to 1650 nm)
・Measures PL lifetime down to 200 ps using deconvolution
・Measures PL spectrum as the standard function
・Multipoint measurement (Option)
・Low temperature measurement (Option)

Measurement of PL spectrum and PL lifetime of thin-film, compound-semiconductor photovoltaic materials.
The measurement of PL spectrum and PL lifetime are closely related to conversion effciency. PL carrier lifetime indicates the difference in conversion efficiency, which cannot be distinguished through PL spectrum.
