Laser Induced Fluorescence Imaging Facility

This facility makes use of a novel technique to generate metastable He2* triplet molecules for visualization studies in helium.

Our facility includes a commercial femtosecond regenerative amplifier laser system, pulsed Nd:YAG laser, two fiber-coupled continuous wave diode lasers, and an intensified CCD camera system. This equipment allows us to create and image a thin (100 um) line of metastable He2* triplet molecules for visualization studies in helium. The line is created in a customizable experimental cell attached to our low loss optical cryostat.
