NT270 series tunable laser systems integrate into a single compact housing a nanosecond Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) and Diode-Pumped Solid–State (DPSS) Q-switched pump laser.

Diode pumping enables fast data acquisition at high pulse repetition rates up to 1 kHz while avoiding frequent flashlamp changes that are common when flashlamp pumped lasers are used. The pump lasers do not require water for cooling, thus further reducing running and maintenance costs.

All lasers feature motorized tuning across the specified tuning range. The output wavelength can be set from control pad with backlit display that is easy to read even while wearing laser safety glasses. Alternatively, the laser can be controlled also from personal computer using supplied LabVIEW™ drivers.

High conversion efficiency, stable output, easy maintenance and compact size make our systems excellent choice for lots of applications.

  1. Due to continuous improvement, all specifications are subject to change. Parameters marked typical are illustrative; they are indications of typical performance and will vary with each unit we manufacture. Unless stated otherwise all specifications are measured at 3000 nm for NT277, NT277-XIR unit and at 7000 nm for NT277-XIR units and for basic system without options.
  2. Available wavelength range. Custom tuning ranges are available.
  3. See tuning curves for typical outputs at other wavelengths.
  4. Higher energy 10 – 150 cm⁻¹ option is available for 2500 – 4475 nm tuning range.
  5. For manual input from PC. When wavelength is controlled from keypad, tuning resolution is 1 nm.
  6. Measured at the wavelength indicated in the “Pulse energy” specification row.
  7. Beam diameter is measured at the 1/e² level at the laser output and and varies depending on the wavelength.
  8. The pump laser pulse energy will be optimized for the best OPO performance. The actual pump laser output can vary with each unit we manufacture.
  9. Measured at FWHM level with photodiode featuring 1 ns rise time and 300 MHz bandwidth oscilloscope.

Note: Laser must be connected to the mains electricity all the time. If there will be no mains electricity for longer that 1 hour then laser (system) needs warm up for a few hours before switching on.

Photolysis – breaking down of a chemical compound by photons

Photodissociation of Sodium Iodide Clusters Doped with Small Hydrocarbons

Marine aerosols consist of a variety of compounds and play an important role in many atmospheric processes. In the present study, sodium iodide clusters with their simple isotope pattern serve as model systems for laboratory studies to investigate the role of iodide in the photochemical processing of sea‐salt aerosols. Salt clusters doped with camphor, formate and pyruvate are studied in a Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer (FT‐ICR MS) coupled to a tunable laser system in both UV and IR range. The analysis is supported by ab initio calculations of absorption spectra and energetics of dissociative channels. We provide quantitative analysis of IRMPD measurements by reconstructing one‐photon spectra and comparing them with the calculated ones. While neutral camphor is adsorbed on the cluster surface, the formate and pyruvate ions replace an iodide ion. The photodissociation spectra revealed several wavelength‐specific fragmentation pathways, including the carbon dioxide radical anion formed by photolysis of pyruvate. Camphor and pyruvate doped clusters absorb in the spectral region above 290 nm, which is relevant for tropospheric photochemistry, leading to internal conversion followed by intramolecular vibrational redistribution, which leads to decomposition of the cluster. Potential photodissociation products of pyruvate in the actinic region may be formed with a cross section of <2×10−20 cm2, determined by the experimental noise level.

Infrared spectroscopy of O˙− and OH− in water clusters: evidence for fast interconversion between O˙− and OH˙OH−

Related applications:  Photolysis

Authors:  J. Lengyel, M. Ončák, A. Herburger, Ch. van der Lindea, M. K. Beyer

We present infrared multiple photon dissociation (IRMPD) spectra of (H2O)n and (H2O)nOH cluster ensembles for [n with combining macron] ≈ 8 and 47 in the range of 2400–4000 cm−1. Both hydrated ions exhibit the same spectral features, in good agreement with theoretical calculations. Decomposition of the calculated spectra shows that bands originating from H2O⋯O˙ and H2O⋯OH interactions span almost the whole spectral region of interest. Experimentally, evaporation of OH˙ is observed to a small extent, which requires interconversion of (H2O)n into (H2O)n–1OH˙OH, with subsequent H2O evaporation preferred over OH˙ evaporation. The modeling shows that (H2O)n and (H2O)n–1OH˙OH cannot be distinguished by IRMPD spectroscopy.
