Applied NanoFluorescence

The NS3 NanoSpectralyzer®


The NS3 is the most versatile addition to the innovative line of NanoSpectralyzer instruments from Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC. Its modular design allows easy customization to meet specific customer needs for nanomaterial characterization.  In addition to its core function as a sensitive near-IR fluorometer and absorption spectrometer, the NS3 can be configured with any of the following spectral capabilities:

Luminescence measurements

  • Visible emission (400 to 900 nm)
  • Near-IR emission (900 to 1600 nm)
  • Extended near-IR emission (to 1940 nm)
  • Up to five discrete excitation wavelengths from 405 to 830 nm

Absorption measurements

  • UV absorption (210 to 450 nm)
  • Visible absorption (400 to 900 nm)
  • Near-IR absorption (900 to 1600 nm)
  • Extended near-IR absorption (to 1940 nm)

Raman measurements

  • Raman spectra from 150 to 3000 cm-1 shift, with 532 nm excitation
  • Raman spectra from 150 to 3000 cm-1 shift, with 671 nm excitation
