CNSI Confocal Microscopy and Spectroscopy Facility
Focused on Confocal Raman and PL Imaging, the facility houses a custom Horiba Jobin Yvon T64000 confocal microscope, equipped with a triple monochromator for high resolution, low cm-1 work, LN2-cooled CCD and PMT/APD detectors, and a stepper-driven µm/mm stage.
The system accommodates multiple excitation wavelengths, including 405 nm (InGaN laser diode), 457-527 nm (Ar+), 532 nm (YAG), and 647 nm (Kr+). Time correlated photon counting with fs-laser excitation (150 fs @ ~800 nm or 400 nm) are coming soon.
The open microscope design also allows users to bring their own experimental systems or stages to combine optical interrogation with heating/cooling, electrical testing, etc.
