Measuring ultrafast transient absorption spectra at cryogenic temperatures using an OptistatDry cryostat

This application note describes an experiment to measure ultrafast transient absorption spectra of a biologically relevant chromophore at cryogenic temperatures. The measurements were carried out using Oxford Instruments’ OptistatDry cryogenic system in a transient absorption spectrometer. The experiment demonstrates the feasibility of such measurements.
