A new light-emitting-diode (LED) pulsing system for measurement of time-resolved luminescence will be presented. The system has been designed for use with a set of blue light-emitting diodes as the stimulation light source. The LEDs are pulsed at various pulse width by signals from a 555-timer wired as a monostable multivibrator. The output pulse from the 555-timer is fed into an N7000 MOSFET to produce a pulse current of 500 mA to drive a set of 16 LEDs. This amount of current is sufficient to drive four sets of 4 LEDs with each LED driven at a maximum pulse current of 110 mA. A multichannel scaler (Ortec MCS-plusTM) is used to trigger the pulsing system and to record data at selectable dwell times. The system is designed for use on wide band gap insulators.
