we want to make time resolved photoluminescence measurements of various dyes as a student experiment. For this we need a PC oscilloscope with a time resolution of about 0.5 ns to read the signal of a fast photo diode. The dye is excited by a pulsed laser with a repetition rate of 20 kHz and the luminescence has a decay time of several ns.
Since it is a student experiment, the price must not exceed 1000â‚¬. Is the 3204 oscilloscope suitable for this application?
