Bayram Research Group  -   Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics

                     ~ Quantum-Optical and Laser Spectroscopy ~

Briana shows Patrick and Jacob how to align the counter propagating beams and collect laser induced fluorescence from the diatomic molecular cell.

Lasers are pulsed blue dye pumped by the third harmonics of a Nd:YAG laser at 355 nm and the second harmonics of the green laser at 532 nm.




The Bayram Research Group conducts research into the light-matter interaction using nanosecond and picosecond pulses of laser light, atomic & molecular vapor and ideas of quantum physics.
