Temporal laser-wing effects are associated with the unavoidable time characteristics of laser pulses. To remove their contribution in saturated laser-induced fluorescence, time sampling is commonly adopted. In the present work, an alternative approach is formulated. It is based on power measurements obtained from the whole fluorescence response. Numerical simulations with a four-level dynamical model are described to test the method against the traditional time-sampling procedure. A greater amount of measured signal and independence from the fast electronic sampler are the main advantages of the proposed method.
