It even surprised us just how many scientific fields Litron’s PIV lasers are now being used in.

We have been the world leader in PIV laser technology since its inception so with the number of lasers shipped in the thousands, it is gratifying to see researchers worldwide putting this technology to ever more diverse applications. It is a credit to their vision and creative thinking.

We’ve split the list into two sections to help you find relevant papers close to your own specific application area.

The first list links to papers using standard twin head pulsed lamp-pumped Nd:YAG lasers operating at 532 nm at 10 Hz to 200 Hz repetition rates.

The second list links to papers using diode-pumped CW and Q-switched CW Nd:YLF lasers operating at 527 nm typically at 1 kHz to 20 kHz repetition rates.
