Laser Lab

The GSECARS Laser Laboratory contains a 2-watt Innova 90P argon ion laser and a Raman spectrometer. This system is used for offline Raman spectroscopy and ruby fluorescence pressure measurement. The lab also contains the new GSECARS / COMPRES micro manipulator.  The 100-watt fiber laser, used for laser machining including drilling gaskets for DACs is located in the GSE DAC Lab.

The Laser Lab is for use by GSECARS users and any APS user needing to use a Raman spectrometer or ruby fluorescent system.
