Abstract
A simple experimental technique for measuring the lifetime of long-lived excited levels for low intensity monoexponential fluorescence signals is presented. It is based on the measurement of the imaginary part of the Fourier transform of the probability density function of the time of arrival of the first photon after the excitation. Owing to its theoretical and practical contents (photon counting techniques, lifetime measurement techniques), this experimental procedure may constitute a suitable practice for undergraduate students in Optics and Solid State Physics.
