Highly vibrationally excited benzene: Overtone spectroscopy and intramolecular dynamics of C6H6, C6D6, and partially deuterated or substituted benzenes
Ultrasensitive dye laser photoacoustic spectra have been obtained for CH and CD stretch overtone excitations of gas phase benzene (C6H6, C6D6, C6HD5), toluene, and fluorobenzenes (C6H5F, C6HF5) inExpand

Alexandrite laser pumped by semiconductor lasers
We report the first operation of a direct diode‐pumped tunable chromium‐doped solid‐state laser. A small alexandrite (Cr:BeAl2O4) crystal was longitudinally pumped by two visible laser diodes. TheExpand

Theory of vibrational overtone line shapes of polyatomic molecules
We present a general theory for the overtone absorption line shapes of isolated polyatomic molecules. The theory is based on a separation of the molecular vibrational degrees of freedom into: (1) aExpand

Raman-shifted alexandrite laser for soft tissue ablation in the 6- to 7-µm wavelength range
A Raman-shifted, pulsed alexandrite laser that is tunable from 6 to 7 µm and cuts soft tissues cleanly—approximately 15 µm of thermal damage surrounding ablation craters in cornea—and does so with volumetric ablation rates of 2–5 × 10−3 mm3/s. Expand
