There were some software bugs, initially, but the technical support was more than adequate to keep these problems from detracting from the product.
On the scale 1-5 I would rate Helios:

• Reliability: 5
• Quality: 5
• Easy to use: 5

We purchased a prototype of the Helios system seven years ago, and since then we have been using it continuously. It is easy to align and it provides excellent and highly reproducible data. The software for the acquisition of transient absorption data is easy to use and provides a clear picture of the spectral evolution during the experiment.

The Surface Xplorer Pro software provides a very good support for the spectral and kinetic analysis of transient absorption data.

I would highly recommend both the instrument and the software.

Gone are the days when you had to worry about spending months to set up a transient absorption spectrophotometer for the femtosecond laser system. When we decided to purchase a femtosecond laser system, we approached Ultrafast Systems for help setting up the transient absorption instrument. Within a week of the arrival of the laser, the UFS engineers came over and set up the whole system in just one day. The next day we could already start collecting data. Since then it has been used without a hitch. For any new user it takes only few minutes to get acquainted with the software.

The Helios spectrometer from Ultrafast Systems is a state of the art technology that deserves to be on the bench top of every photochemist. The pricing of the whole package is modest and it is user-friendly. For us, it was a big saving of manpower and time. The system is well thought out. Its simplicity, compactness and ease of use are some of the best features that I have ever seen in any commercial or homebuilt system.

With Helios we are planning to tackle many issues related to the charge transfer processes in semiconductor nanostructures and molecular clusters.

I've set up a number of pump-probe experiments including a white-light continuum probe-based system. Based on this, I can certainly say that the attention to detail paid when developing the HELIOS instrument has paid off in terms of convenience and reliability. Since the moment we've had the HELIOS installed it has become one of the most used pieces of equipment in our labs and has certainly rewarded the investment we've put in.
