The limits of time resolution are being reduced dramatically with the development of ever shorter laser pulses. In this communication I discuss the potential for approaching these limits by experiments in the frequency domain using electro-optic (E0) phase-sensitive detection. The method is used to separate Raman scattering (RS) from spontaneous emission and to measure the rate of fluorescence decay.
