About Us

Founded in 2018, Magnitude Instruments provides innovative solutions for high-sensitivity, low noise transient absorption spectroscopy. We specialize in nanosecond-to-millisecond transient absorption spectroscopy in the UV, visible, near-infrared, and mid-infrared spectral regions. All of our instruments have time resolutions as fast as nanoseconds and detection limits as low as hundreds of ΔnanoO.D. Our products also support time-resolved emission spectroscopy measurements with nanosecond time resolution.

The Future of Transient Absorption Spectroscopy

Magnitude Instruments incorporates cutting-edge noise-suppression technology that advances transient absorption spectroscopy toward unprecedented sensitivity and rapid scanning times. Magnitude Instruments offers the most powerful and revamped nanosecond transient absorption spectrometers available. Our technology modernizes nanosecond flash photolysis spectroscopy, making it the most sensitive type of transient absorption spectroscopy available. Our philosophy is to engineer our spectrometers so that chemists, materials scientists and biologists can do state of the art transient spectroscopy without having to be experts in ultrafast laser technology.

Philosophy

At Magnitude Instruments, our goal is to deliver state-of-the-art transient spectrometers that push the limits of sensitivity and are as easy to use as UV-Vis or FTIR instruments. We believe that transient spectroscopy instrumentation in your lab should be engineered so that you can focus on the sample and the results of the measurement rather than on the laser and the measurement itself.

 

Our philosophy is to engineer our spectrometers so that chemists, materials scientists and biologists can do state of the art transient spectroscopy without having to be experts in ultrafast laser technology.

Our nanosecond transient absorption spectrometers deliver this capability using a fundamentally different approach than others in the field. Our patent pending technology reduces noise by orders of magnitude and so does not rely on complex ultrafast lasers to achieve high signal to noise ratios. This enables us to deliver the highest performance nano-to-millisecond transient absorption spectrometers that are true one-box, turn-key systems as reliable and easy to use as your UV-Vis or FTIR spectrometer.

 

Our patent-pending detection technology enables an unprecedented 100 ΔnanoO.D. detection limit and full 2D frequency and time resolution. This advance leads to instruments that are better, faster, smaller, and easier to use than the previous state-of-the-art.

Let’s test your sample and determine if Magnitude Instruments can help you.
