An Introduction to Time-Resolved Pump/Probe Spectroscopy

Volume 39, Number 3 (June 1985) Page 444-451

Lytle, F.E.; Parrish, R.M.; Barnes, W.T.

The construction and operating principles of a two-color pump/probe spectrometer are described. This instrument is capable of obtaining ground-state absorption spectra, both singlet-singlet and triplet-triplet excited-state absorption spectra, photoproduct spectra, and stimulated fluorescence spectra. In addition, time-dependent measurements can be made with an impulse response of 250 ps and a free temporal range of 13 ns.
