Solving a Magnetic Raman Scattering Problem

In recent work appearing in the Physical Review, Dr. Mikhail Prosnikov was investigating Magnetic Raman scattering. To calculate some of these delicate measurements in the experiments, he required stable, weakly-divergent and narrow line lasers. The torus 532 laser from Laser Quantum was the perfect tool to use to acquire accurate data and further his research. The … Continue reading
