Picosend molecular relaxation displayed with crossed laser beams. Academic Article uri icon


  • We have measured directly, with one laser shot, the picosecond relaxation times of Kodak Q-switch (polymethine) dyes at 1.06μ using crossed laser beams. This technique offers a simple effective method of measuring relaxation lifetimes of both fluorescent and non-fluorescent species. © 1969.
