  • Lifetime techniques are applied to diverse fields of study including materials sciences, semiconductor physics, biology, molecular biophysics and photochemistry. Here we present DDRS4PALS, a software for the acquisition and simulation of lifetime spectra using the DRS4 evaluation board (Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland) for time resolved measurements and digitization of detector output pulses. Artifact afflicted pulses can be corrected or rejected prior to the lifetime calculation to provide the generation of high-quality lifetimeLifetime techniques are applied to diverse fields of study including materials sciences, semiconductor physics, biology, molecular biophysics and photochemistry. Here we present DDRS4PALS, a software for the acquisition and simulation of lifetime spectra using the DRS4 evaluation board (Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland) for time resolved measurements and digitization of detector output pulses. Artifact afflicted pulses can be corrected or rejected prior to the lifetime calculation to provide the generation of high-quality lifetime spectra, which are crucial for a profound analysis, i.e. the decomposition of the true information. Moreover, the pulses can be streamed on an (external) hard drive during the measurement and subsequently downloaded in the offline mode without being connected to the hardware. This allows the generation of various lifetime spectra at different configurations from one single measurement and, hence, a meaningful comparison in terms of analyzability and quality. Parallel processing and an integrated JavaScript based language provide convenient options to accelerate and automate time consuming processes such as lifetime spectra simulations.show moreshow less
