Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

A new sub-nanosecond LED at 280 nm: application to protein fluorescence

Birch, D.J.S. and McGuiness, C.D. and Sagoo, K. and McLoskey, D. (2004) A new sub-nanosecond LED at 280 nm: application to protein fluorescence. Measurement Science and Technology, 15 (11). pp. 19-22. ISSN 0957-0233

Abstract

We demonstrate measurement of the intrinsic fluorescence decay of a protein excited with a new and inexpensive optical source based on a light emitting diode (LED) giving 600 ps pulses at ∼280 nm. We believe this source will offer significant new capabilities for fluorescence research and development.
