Paper Abstract

An experimental technique is presented for calibrating the photobleaching process in a highly adsorbing dyed polymer. The interface between the bleached and unbleached layers of the material travels with a constant velocity. By determining the dependence of the velocity on the bleaching intensity, the order of the photobleaching kinetics is determined.
