Original Article:  KOALA:  A program for the processing and decomposition of transient spectra


-Realtime baseline correction, negative-time subtraction, wavelength calibration, and chirp correction
-Decomposition of overlapped spectral features using standard basis functions or custom spectral profiles;  decomposition of non-linear components that shift or broaden in time (for Gaussian or Lorentziancomponents only)
-Realtime extraction and fitting of kinetic traces with exponential/biexponential functions convoluted with a Gaussian instrument response function
