Paper Abstract

A number of recent applications of lasers to the solution of photo-optical instrumentation problems are described. These include analytical and experimental studies performed to evaluate the use of both pulsed solid-state and CIV gas lasers as light sources for schlieren and interferometer systems, the application of a iCW gas laser and a high-speed camera to investigate dynamic acoustic pressure waves and the investigation of a laser source for a backscattering photometer for measuring light transmission through the atmosphere. Each application described serves to illustrate one or more of the laser's unique properties in meeting a particular photo-optical instrumentation requirement.
