  1. 1. Development and Application of Single-Ended Picosecond Laser Diagnostics

    Author : Billy Kaldvee; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Raman Scattering; Temporal Filtering; Picosecond Laser Diagnostics; Rayleigh Scattering; Laser-spectroscopy; DIAL; Laser Combustion Diagnostics; Lidar; Laser-induced Fluorescence; Laser-induced Incandescence; Fysicumarkivet A:2012:Kaldvee;

    Abstract : Light detection and ranging (lidar), a method for nonintrusive, single-ended, and range resolved measurements, has been developed and applied for combustion related diagnostics. Employing picosecond laser pulse durations and detectors providing temporal resolution on the order of picoseconds, lidar has been applied successfully for both quantitative temperature- and species concentration measurements, obtaining an ultimate range resolution of 0.

  2. 2. Novel Technologies for Mode-Locking of Solid-State Lasers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Niels Meiser; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; laser; mode-locked laser; pulsed laser; quantum dot; carbon nanotube; nonlinear optics; saturable absorber; Kerr-lens mode-locking; ultra-fast laser; picosecond laser; pulsed laser; semiconductor saturable absorber;

    Abstract : The subject of this thesis is the investigation of novel technologies for mode-locking of diode-pumped, solid-state lasers. Novel saturable absorbers are used: quantum dots (QDs) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs), which both are low-dimensional nano-formations. In addition, mode-locking by cascaded nonlinearities is explored.

  3. 3. Laser Diagnostics in Combustion - Elastic Scattering and Picosecond Laser-Induced Fluorescence

    University dissertation from Division of Combustion Physics, Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Frederik Ossler; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spray; Picosecond laser; Streak camera; Time resolved; Fluorescence lifetimes; 3 – D flow imaging; 2 - D lifetime imaging; Pressure; Temperature; Hydrogen atoms; Oxygen atoms; 3-pentanone; Acetone; Lorenz-Mie theory; Aerosol; Fysicumarkivet A:1999:Ossler; Scattering; Fysik; Physics; Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.;

    Abstract : Elastic scattering and the Lorenz-Mie (LM) theory in particular is used for the characterization of sub-micron- and micron-sized droplets of organic fuels in sprays and aerosols. Calculations on the Lorenz- Mie theory show that backward-sideward scattered visible radiation can be used for unambiguous detection of ensembles of homogeneous droplets of organic substances with diameters around 1 micrometer (size parameter between 2 and 6).

  4. 4. Development and Characterisation of a Laser-Based Hard X-Ray Source

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Carl Tillman; [1996]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; laser-produced plasma; X-ray source; laser; X-ray spectroscopy; dosimetry; radiography; medical imaging; radiation effects; differential imaging; Fysicumarkivet A:1996:Tillman; Atom- och molekylärfysik; Atomic and molecular physics;

    Abstract : A laser-produced plasma was generated by focusing 100 fs laser pulses, with an energy of 150 mJ, onto metal targets. The laser intensity was expected to reach 10E17 W/cm2. Radiation was emitted from the created plasma, with photon energies extending up to the MeV regime. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards Quantitative Diagnostics using Short-Pulse Laser Techniques

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Andreas Ehn; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PicoSecond Laser Diagnostics; Raman Scattering; Photo Fragmentation; Fluorescnece Lifetime Imaging; Temporal Filtering; Fysicumarkivet A:2012:Ehn; LIDAR; Laser-Induced Fluorescence;

    Abstract : Laser based diagnostic tools have had an exploding impact on fundamental as well as applied research in a number of disciplines, such as biomedicine, physical chemistry etc over the last decades. Whereas fundamental research often investigate phenomena in extreme conditions, applied research aims at performing in-situ measurements, in order to understand the many aspects and entangled phenomena that affects the research of interest.
