Abstract
The assembly of a pulsed laser spectroscopy laboratory is presented. The authors describe how they constructed pulsed lasers, fast photodetectors, a boxcar signal averager, and associated equipment. A molecular nitrogen laser operating up to 50 Hz with an ultraviolet (337.1 nm) 700 kW pulse was used to optically pump an organic dye laser. The resulting output could be tuned from 360.0 to 680.0 nm. This pulse was typically 30 kW and 8 nsec, which makes it ideally suited to selective excitation and fluorescence studies. By constructing this equipment, it is estimated that the investment was one-tenth the cost of commercial components.
