Biological, Photochemical, and Spectroscopic Applications of Lasers

  • Michael W. Berns


Not more than 5 years ago, it was common to refer to the laser as an “instrument in search of a problem.” Here was this marvelous device that could generate electromagnetic radiation that was naturally monochromatic (+0.05 nm) anywhere from 250 nm through the visible and infrared regions of the spectrum, and both the peak intensities and the average intensities were thousands of orders of magnitude higher than obtainable with the older classical sources. In addition, it was possible to generate ultrashort pulses (below 10-12 s) of this intense, monochromatic radiation. Furthermore, because of the physical mechanism involved in stimulated emission of radiation, and the design of laser cavities, the output beam was always plane polarized and virtually nondivergent.
