Paper Abstract

Interest in the longer wavelength region of the electromagnetic spectrum has recently been spurred by research in electro-optics and materials science. Some of the techniques and hardware developed for those applications now allow fluorescence spectroscopy to stretch beyond the traditional boundaries of the ultra-violet and visible spectrum. One recent field of inquiry in IR fluorescence involves the characterization of solid-state laser materials such as Nd:YAG. In the photochemical area, singlet oxygen has been proposed as one of the primary intermediates of light-induced aging in polymers. Singlet oxygen is also of interest as a participant in certain biological mechanisms. As it happens both of these materials have major emissions in the region above one micron.
