Abstract

A sample cell for performing time-resolved spectroscopy on solid samples within an atmosphere of controlled vapor composition was designed and constructed. Control over vapor composition was accomplished using a combination of passive sealing and chemical agents. Performance characteristics especially well-suited to studies using femtosecond mid-infrared spectroscopy were achieved by the use of ultrathin silicon nitride windows and a rapid and reproducible sample cell exchange mechanism. © 2013 American Institute of Physics.
