Supercontinuum (SC) with photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is a new technique of pulsed white light generation. The pump beam and the white probe light are necessary for pump-probe pulse radiolysis. The improvement of pulse radiolysis system can be expected by using PCF based SC as probe light. The source size of white light that depends on core size of PCF will be improved. Nanosecond time resolution pulse radiolysis with SC probe was successfully conducted about pure water sample. The absorption decay and spectrum of hydrated electron was obtained. As SC is a short pulse, it would be applicable for picosecond time resolution pulse radiolysis based on the stroboscopic method.
