Abstract : Flash photolysis provides a means of studying the short-lived chemical intermediates which result from exposure to light. The paper describes the instrumentation for this technique developed at Northeastern University. Details are presented of the main discharge circuit, of the flash tubes, and of the trigger, delay, and detection circuits. A flash photolysis assembly based on the pulsed ruby laser is also described. The photolysis of aqueous methylene blue serves to illustrate the performance of the apparatus. (Author)
