Featured Paper


Compact Solid-State 213 nm Laser Enables Standoff Deep Ultraviolet Raman Spectrometer: Measurements of Nitrate Photochemistry

     Sergei V. Bykov, Michael Mao, Katie L. Gares, and Sanford A. Asher

The cover for the August 2015 issue of Applied Spectroscopy features an accelerated paper from Sanford A. Asher, Sergei V. Bykov, Michael Mao, and Katie L. Gares entitled, ‘‘Compact Solid-State 213 nm Laser Enables Standoff Deep Ultraviolet Raman Spectrometer: Measurements of Nitrate Photochemistry’’, pp. 895–901. The paper describes a new compact acousto-optically Q-switched diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) intracavity-frequency tripled neodymium-doped yttrium vanadate (Nd:YVO4) laser capable of producing ~100 mW of 213 nm power quasi-continuous wave as 15 ns pulses at a 30 kHz repetition rate.   Read more...
