THE presence in the light scattered by fluids, of wave-lengths different from those present in the incident light, is shown very clearly by the accompanying photographs (Fig. 1). In the illustration (1) represents the spectrum of the light from a quartz mercury vapour lamp, from which all wave-lengths greater than that of the indigo line have been filtered out. Thisline (4358 A.) is marked Din the spectrogram, and C is the group of lines 4047, 4078, and 4109 A. Spectrogram (2) shows the… 
Dippler effect in light scattering in liquids
The present paper describes a study of the state of polarisation of the three components observed in the spectrum of the scattered light when examined with a Fabry-Perot etalon. Three typical
External cavity diode lasers and non-linear optical frequency conversion in spectroscopic applications
Semiconductor diode lasers are successful tools in atomic spectroscopy. They are routinely used in frequency conversion applications to develop devices that access regions of the spectrum not
Controversy over the Spectral Raman-lines
In the beginning of 1930s, Professor Bidhu Bhushan Ray (1894-1944) of the University of Calcutta while experimenting with X-rays observed spectral lines. His contemporaries in Europe and USA were
Stimulated Raman microscopy without ultrafast lasers
Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy is a powerful tool for chemically-sensitive non-invasive optical imaging. However, the short-pulse laser sources, which are currently being employed for
Raman effect: History of the discovery
The paper gives a historical account of the discovery of the Raman Effect, starting from Raman's voyage to Europe through the Mediterranean Sea in the summer of 1921 to the observation of modified
Time interval and lattice vibration in Raman effect, photoelectric effect and plane mirror reflection
Time interval between the incident and scattered photon in Raman effect and absorption of photon and emission of electron in photoelectric effect has not been determined till now. This is because
Continuous-wave stimulated Raman scattering (cwSRS) microscopy
Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy is a powerful tool for chemically sensitive non-invasive optical imaging. However, ultrafast laser sources, which are currently employed, are still
FROM THE HISTORY OF PHYSICS: The discovery of combination scattering of light in Russia and India
The history of the discovery of combination (Raman) scattering of light in Moscow and Calcutta is briefly described. Moscow physicists observed the lines due to the new effect on February 21, 1928
Optical studies of diatomic molecules at extreme conditions
