Abstract

We demonstrate a nanosecond transient absorbance spectrometer that utilizes flexible resolution and rapid data acquisition triggering modes. The instrument features signal-to-noise (S/N) levels enhanced by an order of magnitude especially within the first 100 ns. The primary gain in S/N comes from our sequential subtraction method, which requires a fast digitizer trigger rearm time to detect every laser trigger event.
