Wanted - Yellow laser info:

If anyone has photo's of a 589 nm or any other yellow wavelength, including 561 nm, or articles regarding optical cavities for the generation of yellow wavelength lasers please post links or photo's to this thread.

I'm putting together a small library of information regarding yellow lasers I would like to share with others.

Here's what I have so far:

Yellow Wavelength Lasers - 561, 589 +

Scientific papers are usually a good start which you have already started including. Nice thread idea.

This is a pretty good idea. While I don't have any documents saved, I do have the theoretical wavelength chart with the crystal info/lines that might help aid research. Link in my sig.

For yellow DPSS, you'll see 556nm, 561nm, 577nm (? Cni has it. Not sure if dpss or opsl), 589nm, and 593.5nm. 589 and 593.5 are SFG, others are regular frequency doubling.

I have a bunch of reviews out there for these.. 561, 589, and I think 593.5... need to dig for that link. Feel free to use any pictures I took.

edit: 593.5nm pictures are gone forever, imageshack terminated my account due to inactivity.

Nice Chart ZRaffleticket. :beer:
If only all of those wavelengths were easily achievable.

Thanks ZRaffleticket, I started to move some of your info over there.

This might end up being good enough for a sticky, subbing to stay updated.

Edit: Sticky'd :yh:

Also -- on the bottom of the theoretical wavelength document I have, there are other pages than just Nd:YAG, in case you didn't see them all.

Great idea, Chris. I've seen some of the pdf papers you have in your listing. Don't currently have a good link for you, but will keep this thread in mind when I do.

Thanks Paul and everyone who might contribute.

Wow, I didn't look to see all those tabs before, lots of great info. I have tried to upload the doc to that web site, but they don't allow that format. I will see what I can do.

Edit: ZRaffleticket, I made a tinyurl link to the full document on the imageevent page for yellow laser docs.

Here's few more if DYE lasers are accepted:

Chirs, you probably want back to school when you get back..



“Jintai Li working on dye laser on the night of 13-14 January 2015 at the Lidar Research Laboratory, Poker Flat Research Range. The dye laser produces yellow light at 589 nm, and is a secondary lidar in the MTeX experiment. Jinta Li is a graduate student working on his MS in atmospheric science at the University of Alaska Fairbanks”

I am also interested in dye lasers to produce yellow, much appreciated.

Wow. A lot of great information has accumulated here in a very short time. I hadn't been able to look in recently until now. Will do what I can to add to the information here.
