  • The experimental data are analysed with the following conclusions. The molecular decay time τ0 of a thin anthracene crystal lamina at room temperature is 10 nsec. The thick crystal values are increased by self-absorption to 31.6 nsec (volume excitation, e.g. by γ-rays), 24.1 nsec (surface excitation, e.g. by ultra-violet or α-rays, and emission observed by transmission) and 19.4 nsec (surface excitation, and observation by reflection). Surface oxidation or reduction in crystal thickness yields… CONTINUE READING
