Course gave researchers from 18 countries an introduction to time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy

Through lectures and trainings the participants gained insight into principles of fluorescence spectroscopy and its applications

The 8th European short course on "Principles and Applications of Time-Resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy" organised by PicoQuant GmbH took place from November 1 to 4, 2010, in Berlin. The course brought together individuals from 18 different countries and gave an in-depth introduction to the principles of (time-resolved) fluorescence spectroscopy and its applications to the Life Sciences. As in previous years the short course was organised in close collaboration with the Center for Fluorescence Spectroscopy (CFS) & Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore, USA.

High bit rate Quantum Random Number Generator service started

The generator developed by PicoQuant GmbH and the the Nano-Optics groups of HU delivers random numbers over the internet

PicoQuant GmbH and the Nano-Optics groups at the Department of Physics of Humboldt University, Berlin have started a Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) that is based on the quantum randomness of photon arrival times. It provides a bit rate with up to 150 Mbits/s over USB. Interested persons are invited to test and use the generated randomness on the website of the Humboldt University at http://qrng.physik.hu-berlin.de. The service is free of charge but requires registration.
