Abstract

A frequency-doubled Nd:YAG/glass laser system has been constructed for use at the Combustion Research Facility at Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore. This laser system will be used to make single-shot spontaneous Raman spectroscopy measurements of ongoing combustion processes. The output of the system is 5 J of 1.064-μm radiation and 0.8 J of 532-nm radiation in a 2-μsec pulse. The repetition rate of the system is 1 pps. A microprocessor-based diagnostic and control system for the operation is described.
