Kinetics of photophysical hole burning in a MTHF(TC) glass follows the concept of decoupled first-order reactions with Gaussian distribution of the tunnelling parameter. The decrease of the hole-burning yield with increasing temperature signals thermally activated hole refilling in the excited state. The ratio of TLS states responsible for dephasing and hole burning, respectively, is estimated to be ≈ 107.
