Pulsed lasers are becoming a common optical source in analytical spectroscopy. Three attributes of pulsed lasers have been principally responsible for this development: the ease of gain generation in pulsed systems, the pulsed radiation waveform for time-resolution, and the concomitant peak optical power for observing nonlinear effects.
