   How Do Fluorescent Light Bulbs Work?How Do Fluorescent Light Bulbs Work?
A fluorescent light bulb, such as those found in neon lights, uses an entirely different method to produce light than an incandescent light bulb. A fluorescent bulb is a gas-discharge tube which produces fluorescent light. There are a pair of electrodes at either end of a glass tube inside which small amounts of mercury together with an inert gas (usually argon) are kept under very low pressure.
   The Applications of a SpectrofluorometerThe Applications of a Spectrofluorometer
Spectrofluorometer is an instrument that works on the principle of fluorescence spectroscopy. It is a rapid and sensitive method for the characterization of molecular components present in a sample. Fluorescence spectroscopy is a type of electromagnetic spectroscopy which analyzes fluorescent molecules. It exploits the phenomenon of electron excitation upon collision with high energy particles like photons and other excited electrons.
 Avoiding Cell Death in Fluorescence Microscopy
Avoiding Cell Death in Fluorescence MicroscopyFluorescence microscopy is a common laboratory tool used to investigate the physiology of different cells. Specific wavelengths of light are shone onto cells in a sample, where the light is absorbed by molecules called fluorophores. There are many types of fluorophore, all of which absorb light and re-emit light of a longer wavelength, visible as a different colour.
 Plasmon-enhanced Fluorescence Spectroscopy
Plasmon-enhanced Fluorescence SpectroscopyPlasmon-enhanced fluorescence spectroscopy is a useful tool for imaging cells and other samples on a single-molecule level. This method poses several advantages over conventional fluorescence microscopy.
 Continuous Flow Synthesis Method for Fluorescent Quantum Dots
Continuous Flow Synthesis Method for Fluorescent Quantum DotsQuantum dots have promising applications in a wide range of fields such as photovoltaics, medicine, and quantum computing. The Center for Applied Nanotechnology (CAN) in Hamburg is making significant advancement in making high-quality quantum dots accessible for research and mass production.
