Abstract

Tunable infrared lasers have proved more difficult to develop than tunable visible lasers such as dye lasers. Although various approaches have been successful in generating tunable infrared, they have involved considerable complexity and expense. Recent work however in the Electronics Department at Southampton University has shown that stimulated Raman scattering in alkali metal vapours can offer a simple method for converting the beam from a tunable dye laser into an intense, coherent beam of tunable infrared radiation.
