20 February 2017 An all-optical, in situ diagnostic for large molecule and nanoparticle detection
Author Affiliations +
We report on the development and application of a new laser diagnostic for the in situ detection of large molecules and nanoparticles. This four wave mixing diagnostic technique relies on the creation of an optical lattice in a medium due to the interaction between polarized particles and intense laser fields. Though this interaction, we can detect the temperature, pressure, relative density, polarizability and speed of sound of a gas and gas mixture. This diagnostic was already successfully demonstrated in atomic and molecular gaseous environments, where the different gas polarizabilities and pressures were successfully measured. We are currently conducting measurements with large molecules and nanoparticles, the results of which will be presented in this meeting.
