Laser-induced fluorescence measurements of three plasma species with a tunable diode laser

Conference Paper


  • Recently, we demonstrated that a single, tunable, low-power, diode laser can be used for laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) measurements of both argon ions and helium neutrals. We have now identified a third fluorescence scheme, for neutral argon atoms, accessible with the same tunable diode laser. Fluorescence measurements of a heated iodine cell are used to monitor the wavelength of the laser during the LIF measurement.
