Paper Abstract

Computer controlled apparatus for laser flash spectroscopy has been constructed. Nitrogen laser (energy 1 inJ, pulse width 1 ns) is used both for excitation of the sample and for pumping the tunable dye laser which serves as a source of monitoring light. Two different scans are possible: (i) a mode with a fixed wavelength of the inonitoring light - the temporal evolution of the transient absorption in the range from -2 ns up to 100 ns can be observed by changing the length of the variable self-compensating optical delay line, (ii) a mode with a fixed time delay - the corresponding transient absorption in the range 380 - 800 nm can be measured. For illustration, time evolution of transient absorption and time resolved spectra of benzanthracene in ethanol are reported.
