A method for performing time resolved imaging, spectroscopy or diffraction techniques involving a sample held in an analytical device. The method generally includes supporting a sample within an analytical device with a sample holder, conveying a light beam through an internal conduit of a sample holder body of the sample holder and directing the light beam between the sample holder body and the sample with a first light beam positioner of a sample support member of the sample holder, such that the light beam and an energy pulse emitted by an energy source of the analytical device converge on the sample supported by the sample holder within the analytical device.
