Paper Abstract

Photoluminescence (PL) refers to light emission initiated by any form of photon excitation. PL spectroscopy and microscopy imaging has been widely applied in material, chemical and life sciences. Measuring its lifetime yields a new dimension of the PL imaging and opens new opportunities for many PL applications. In solar cell research, quantification of the PL lifetime has become an important evaluation for the characteristics of the Perovskite thin film. Depending upon the PL process (fluorescence, phosphorescence, photon upconversion, etc.), the PL lifetimes to be measured can vary in a wide timescale range (e.g. from sub-nanoseconds to microseconds or even milliseconds) – it is challenging to cover this wide range of lifetime measurements by a single technique efficiently. Here, we present a novel digital frequency domain (DFD) technique named FastFLIM, capable of measuring the PL lifetime from 100 ps to 100 ms at the high data collection efficiency (up to 140-million counts per second). Other than the traditional nonlinear leastsquare fitting analysis, the raw data acquired by FastFLIM can be directly processed by the model-free phasor plots approach for instant and unbiased lifetime results, providing the ideal routine for the PL lifetime microscopy imaging.
