Picosecond spectroscopy using a picosecond continuum Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper describes the generation of a continuum which has a time duration equal to or less than the picosecond pulse which generates it. The spectrum of the continuum is several thousand wavenumbers in width. Experimental methods are presented which enable one for the first time to conduct absorption spectroscopy measurements in the picosecond scale. As an example of this method we describe the absorption and emission picosecond kinetics of a bleachable dye 3,3 diethyloxodicarbocyanine (DODC). 1973.
