Quantum Efficiency Measurement System QE-2000

High accurate and instant absolute quantum efficiency measurement is possible for powder, solution and solid sample. Stray light effect in UV wavelength region is substantially eliminated. Further, high sensitivity is achieved thanks to integrating hemisphere as detector, and re-excitation elimination function enables to obtain “True property” of phosphor characteristics.

Applications
  • LED and OLED Materials
  • Thin film state sample such as Remote Phosphor
  • Quantum dot, fluorescent probe, biotechnology, clathrate
  • Dye sensitized solar cell
  • Complex Chemistry

 

Reason for success
1.Optimized geometry using integrating hemisphere

QE-2000 equips integrating hemisphere which has various unique features what others don’t have.

  • Optimized geometry enables non-emissive part locating outside making self-absorption effect minimized
  • Mirror surface to achieve approx. double illuminance than existing integrating (full)sphere
  • Easy cell loading and unloading to reduce the risk of damaging inside of sphere

   

 

2.Re-excitation eliminating function for “True property”

True property cannot be obtained under the condition of re-excitation emission being included because apparatus property is included. Making use of advantage of integrating hemisphere, QE-2000 enables accurate measurement using re-excitation eliminating functions.

   

  

 

3.Low stray light array spectrometer for reducing stray light in UV region

Instead of existing detector which gave significant amount of stray light, Otsuka newly invented a stray light eliminating solution. It is clearly seen that the array spectrometer used for QE-2000 has stray light 1/5 of the existing model (orange-colored spectrum).

Application

Power application
Multi excitation of BAM

The quantum efficiency (yield) depends on excitation wavelength. The relationship between quantum efficiency (yield) of BAM and excitation wavelength is shown on the right. (BAM = BaMgAl10O17:Eu) 

・Blue(left): Internal quantum efficiency (yield) after re-excitation correction
・Red(right): Reflectance at each excitation wavelength

In case of BAM from above study, the closer to visual range the excitation wavelength is, the lower absorptance becomes, in another word the higher reflectance.
