In Case You Don't Have Enough Iodine in Your Diet

Some laser table porn. This shows an iodine vapor cell fluorescing from some ~520 nm light passing through, as well as scatter off of other components. Visible lasers make for quite a show; not everyone we’ve had in the lab believes that our IR lasers systems are really aligned since they can’t see the light.

  1. Aah, visible lasers. So very easy to align. 1 um and 1.5 um lasers aren’t so much worse, although they do mean having one of those damn spotter scopes in your hand half the time. 2 um lasers just suck, though; spotter scopes (at least, non-exotic ones) and phosphor cards won’t see them at all. Damn shame that Ho and Tm lasers are the wave of the future for a lot of our applications.

    Just go to Japan and order some food.
