WITec launched StrobeLock, a time-correlated single photon counting measurement option. The imaging modes include Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging and Time-resolved Luminescence Microscopy, which can be integrated with the WITec alpha300 and alpha500 microscope series. StrobeLock facilitates the acquisition of additional material contrasts hidden in the time function of a fluorescence or luminescence signal and allows them to be perfectly linked with Raman, SNOM or AFM imaging. It enables a variety of measurement possibilities for an improved and more comprehensive understanding of a sample’s properties and is specifically suited for materials science. The modular design of the WITec microscopes facilitates user-friendly combination of the StrobeLock module with the WITec confocal microscope series. StrobeLock is comprised of a pulsed excitation laser system combined with a Time-Correlated Single-Photon Counting (TCSPC) detector. The possibility to switch between time-resolved and conventional mode enables the microscope user to conveniently choose the preferred measurement technique.
