We show a femtosecond fluorescence upconversion setup with broadband detection to measure time-resolved emission spectra in the 300 550 nm range, upon excitation between 250 and 300 nm , with a time resolution of 100 fs . We present time-resolved fluorescence emission spectra of 2,5-diphenyloxazole in solution, which demonstrate the capabilities of the setup.
