Specific device description Potencial for use (specific activities) Tariff for use of device* (Eur per hour)

The total integrated scattering test station consists of: LabSphere Ulbricht type integrating sphere (spectral range 0.35-1.4 mm), closed-loop air cleaning system (EkoFiltras) with three-stage filters. ISO 6 cleanliness is achieved in the HEPA14 camera. Measurements can be performed using first (1064 nm), second (532 nm) and third (355 nm) harmonics of a nanosecond Nd:YAG Q-switched laser (Ekspla NL 202), producing 9 ns pulses with up to 2 mJ pulse energy at a 1 kHz repetition rate. The station can perform scattering loss measurements on samples with a diameter from 12.7 to 28 mm and thickness from 2 to 6 mm. Sample positioning is possible ±15 mm in x and y directions. Two photomultipliers are used: Hamamatsu H5784-20 for 350 - 900 nm spectral range and PMT R5108 for 400-1200 nm. A National Instruments BNC-2110 16 section converter, optimized for short-pulse registration, is integrated for the registration of the scattered and incident radiation. A computer with software is also integrated in the system. For our measurements, we use the OceanOptics WS-1-SL standard, scattering >98% light in 250 – 1500 and 95% in the 250-2200 nm spectral range.
