Despite the long-standing importance of transient absorption (TA) spectroscopy, many researchers remain frustrated by the difficulty of measuring the nanosecond range in a wide spectral range. To address this shortcoming, we propose a TA spectrophotometer in which there is no synchronization between a pump pulse and a train of multiple probe pulses from a(More)
As an advantage, random lasers may be elaborated from a large variety of materials and do not require any cavity oscillators that usually necessitate complicated and expensive fabrication techniques. Since the feedback process of those non-conventional laser systems is provided by light interference in a disordered medium, spectral and temporal(More)
Attenuated total reflectance (ATR)-FTIR spectroscopy has been widely used to probe protein structural changes under various stimuli, such as light absorption, voltage change, and ligand binding, in aqueous conditions. Time-resolved measurements require a trigger, which can be controlled electronically; therefore, light and voltage changes are suitable. Here(More)
