Abstract

A laser flash photolysis system was designed, programmed, and assembled at Gateway Park. The instrument uses a Nd:YAG laser operating at 532 nm in 8 ns pulses and is capable of measuring transients from 100 ns to milliseconds in width at wavelengths of 250-900 nm. Each experimental run produces a set of 500 data points, each representing the difference in optical density between the non-lased and lased states. The instrument can monitor any process in which the absorption of the sample changes upon excitation.
