Abstract

An introduction to lasers as early as a general chemistry course can be of great advantage to both major and non major students in chemistry, but often cost and other practical considerations prevent widespread use of lasers. A versatile laser apparatus suitable for the undergraduate teaching laboratory that may serve as polarimeter, nephelometer, or fluorimeter is described.
