Phosphorescence lifetimes, occurring as emissive decays from the triplet-state, can also be approximated as those decays occurring in the time region from tens of nanoseconds to seconds.
Phosphorescence lifetime measurements are carried out using a technique called Multi-Channel Scaling (MCS) and this is used for the acquisition of sample decays.

Photons are counted in a time window which sweeps across the full time range following each excitation pulse, creating a histogram of counts versus time. The data quality of the resulting histogram is improved by adding the data of repeated sweeps.
