flash photolysis

flash photolysis

n.
A method of investigating fast photochemical reactions by exposure to very brief, intense flashes of light and spectroscopically analyzing the resulting products.

flash photolysis

n
(Chemistry) physics a technique for producing and investigating free radicals. A low-pressure gas is subjected to a flash of radiation to produce the radicals, subsequent flashes being used to identify them and assess their lifetimes by absorption spectroscopy
