Paper Abstract

The advent of the laser has unlocked several new Raman processes which have provided new approaches to many important diagnostic problems. These applications include biochemistry, high resolution spectroscopy, combustion engineering, structural chemical analysis, chemical kinetics, surface chemistry, etc. Included in these techniques are: Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Spectroscopy (CARS) , Raman Induced Kerr Effect (RIKES), and Stimulated Raman Gain. A brief review of these methods and their utility are described with the main emphasis on CARS. Variations of the techniques, e.g., BOXCARS, are also discussed and their use in making temperature and concentration measurements in hostile environments such as turbulent media are presented.
