Photo and ion luminescence

Photoluminescence spectra can be obtained in situ. For this purpose, an UV exciting radiation (Nd-YAG laser at 266 nm) is used. The UV laser enters the chamber through a sapphire window and is focused on the sample at a normal incidence angle. Luminescence induced in the sample by ions during irradiation (ion-induced luminescence) can be also investigated.
