Abstract

Broad Raman-multi-frequency spectra were generated from the resonant two-color excitation of the deuterium molecule rotational Raman transition (J=0→2), using ultraviolet bi-harmonic lasers with a quartz hollow fiber. Fifty pure rotational Raman spectral lines (34 lines that have intensity within 10% of the strongest spectral line) from 230 to 290 nm were generated at a gas pressure of 30 kPa. Furthermore, vibrational-rotational Raman spectral lines of almost 300 lines from 220 to 600 nm were also generated by increasing the gas pressure to 60 kPa.

A schematic diagram of the experimental setup of a simple two-color laser system, using a KrF excimer laser; A: first lambda quarter plate, B: second lambda quarter plate, C: Polarizer, Convex lenses: L1,L2:f = 0.9 m; L3: f = 0.25m. The KrF laser oscillator was operated at 248.0nm. The wavelength of the first Stokes light (ortho-D2, J=0 → 2) was 249.1nm. The KrF laser amplified both light pulses simultaneously. The D2 gas was cooled using liquid Nitrogen to maximize the molecular density in the J=0 state. The inner diameter and length of the hollow fiber was 124μm and 30cm, respectively

The rotational spectrum of D2 (at P = 30kPa); (a) the complete spectrum, solid and dashed lines represent different shot measurements to cover the wide spectral region; (b) and (c) are the same spectrum for a higher resolution measurement. No additional lines originating from vibrational Raman were observed.

The generated vibrational-rotational spectrum of D2 (at P = 60kPa). The detail of the spectrum is given as insets to the right of the main plot. The highlighted spectral lines are, A: Q(0) + 20S(0), B: Q(0) + 37S(0), C: 2Q(0) + 4S(0), D: 3Q(0) + 22S(0), E: 2Q(0) + 39S(0), F: 4Q(0) + 6S(0) (Q(0):2991cm-1, S(0):179cm-1). Assuming this spectrum consists of 8 vibrations with 40 rotational lines, the total number of Raman spectral lines was approximately 320.
