# Half-Life Calculator

This calc assumes exponential decay of fluorescence to determine the half-life and lifetime (which is defined as 1/[decay constant], and corresponds to decay to a level of 1/e (~36.8%). It is not suitable for biexponential or other decay functions. "t=0" should be taken at a point where the excitation source is completely off.
