Research foci (and basic equipment-based research projects):
In this project stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) conversion of quasi-continous (pulse repetition rate > 1kHz) laser radiation to the large number of Stokes components has been experimentally demonstrated by means of a specially developed all-solid-state Raman laser with low excitation treshold. The radiation sources based on such laser systems which can generate an output radiation in spectral ranges that were inaccesible for quasi-continous lasers up to now can find applications in many research fields, especially in Raman spectroscopy in general and of living samples and biological macromolecular assemblies in paricular. This cooperation project was primarily done at the Stepanov Institute of Physics of the National Academy of Science of Belarus within the ISTC (International Science and Techology Center) project B-266.
