Description Free-space optical Photoluminescence
Manufacturer Custom-Built Optics


The Photoluminescence setup is on the same optical table as the Hologaphic Lithography setup.

This custom setup is used for materials characterization including crystal growth quality and gain region/quantum well growth, or semiconductor alloy ratio. Multiple laser sources are available - including the He-Cd laser also used for Holography, via a flip-down mirror.

Light is delivered in free-space, selected via magnetic flip-mirrors, and collected by optical fiber, and analyzed by a USB spectrometer.
