Corrected and calibrated I2 absorption model at frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser wavelengths. Academic Article uri icon


  • We present a computer model for accurately predicting absorption profiles for molecular iodine cells over the tuning range of frequency-doubled Nd:YAG lasers. The model is compared with experimental data for a number of different cell conditions. This model is intended for use in the design and optimization of absorption filters and for data analysis in applications in which the accuracy of the measurement is related closely to the accuracy with which the filter profile is known.
