The second generation Optical Multichannel Analyzer (OMA 2(r)) combines a general purpose optical signal processing computer with self scanned array and vidicon detectors. The basic instrument configuration is suitable for time resolved spectroscopy in the picosecond, nanosecond, microsecond, and millisecond time regimes. This work reviews the way this instrument system has been used in these time resolution areas. Emphasis is on new techniques for streak camera picosecond analysis, microsecond analysis with mechanical scanning, and millisecond time resolved spectra with both vidicon and self scanned Reticon (r) detectors.
