Cavity ring-down absorption spectroscopy (CRDS) is based upon the measurement of the decay rate of light trapped in an
optical cavity with high reflectance. When a pulsed laser radiation is guided into an optical cavity, the small amount of light
trapped inside the cavity reflects between two highly reflective mirrors (R>99.9%) with a small fraction transmitting through
each mirror for each pass. The decay rate of the light leaking out of the cavity is related to the absorption coefficient of the
sample in the cavity. Therefore, the CRDS method may ignore fluctuation of incident radiation intensity, with better sensitivity
than conventional absorption methods due to a longer optical path. It has been developed as a promising alternative, when
modern fluorescence or ionization techniques may not be effectively applied. We have applied this technique to measure the Br2
elimination channel in the photodissociation of a series of dibromo-alkanes and dibromo-alkenes. Evanescent wave cavity ring-
down absorption spectroscopy (EW-CRDS) is one popular technique for the CRDS application in the condensed phase. We have
applied this technique to measure the thermodynamic properties and orientation on the surface adsorption for organic dyes.
