Paper Abstract

The characteristic properties of the tunable solid state infrared laser sources: spinflip Raman lasers, optically pumped solid state tunable lasers, optical parametric oscillators, nonlinear frequency converters and semiconductor diode lasers are compared and their working principles are briefly discussed. Emphasis is put on systems which are already commercially available or which show promise for future applications. The use of diode lasers in ultrafine spectroscopy and pollution monitoring is reviewed.
