Abstract

The use of a 100ns pulse Nd:YAG laser is proposed to perform single-shot measurements by spontaneous Raman scattering. The long pulse duration is obtained thanks to a White cell placed inside the laser oscillator. This lengthens the pulse duration within the laser cavity, keeping almost the same beam quality as standard Nd:YAG lasers. The laser system is described, the advantages are compared with extra-cavity stretched lasers, and single-shot measurement of concentration in gas is demonstrated.
