Radiative lifetime measurements determines the electronic transition dipole moment matrix element which is the key parameter in determination of the probability of absorption and emission of light by a molecule. Lifetime measurements are important for calculations of relative abundances of elements in astrophysics and for predictions of potential laser action and temperature determination of plasma physics.
