Diode-Laser-Based Ultraviolet-Absorption Sensor For High-Speed Detection Of The Hydroxyl Radical, Thomas N. Anderson, Robert P. Lucht, Terrence R. Meyer, Sukesh Roy, James R. Gord

Terrence R Meyer

A new diode-laser-based UV-absorption sensor for high-speed detection of the hydroxyl radical (OH) is described. The sensor is based on sum-frequency generation of UV radiation at 313.5 nm by mixing the output of a 763-nm distributed-feedback diode laser with that of a 532-nm high-power, diode-pumped, frequency-doubled Nd:YVO4 laser in a B-barium borate crystal.
