Conduction cooling has been shown to be a viable means of improving precision and convenience in low temperature phosphorimetry. A new conduction cooling device is presented and evaluated. With this new device, phosphorimetry can now more practically be applied to routine analysis situations. Analytical figures of merit are given for several compounds as a means of comparison of conduction-cooled phosphorescence with immersion-cooled phosphorescence.
