Abstract:

Investigate the potential of a novel laser source based on the neodymium 4F sub 32 yields 4I sub 92 transition for operation at 486.1 nm, the H beta Fraunhofer wavelength. Characterize this transition in NdYAG and also stimulated rotational Raman conversion in H2, D2, and HD as critical steps in such a system.
