Spatial Dependence of Inverse Raman Signals

Volume 35, Number 6 (Dec. 1981) Page 591-593

Daigneault, Gregory R.; Morris, Michael D.

The spatial dependence of inverse Raman signal intensities was investigated. Aqueous 0.5 M potassium nitrate in cells ranging from 1 to 50 mm was used as the test system. Three focusing lenses were used. The data do not fit the arctan dependence derived for Gaussian beams. The deviations are ascribed to the non-Gaussian profile of the pulsed dye laser beam.
