Abstract:

This project is funded to acquire a laser system to be used for study of physical and chemical properties of single aerosol particles trapped in air using the optical trapping-cavity ringdown spectroscopy OT-CRDS technique. The acquired laser system consists of a pumping laser that is an NdYAG laser from Continuum Lasers USA and a narrow linewidth dye laser from Radiant Dye Laser Germany. The NdYAG pumped dye laser system has built-in second harmonic and third harmonic generations to create a UV laser beam down to 200 nm.
