First of all in very new to the photonics field and i am only venturing into it because I have to troubleshoot an experiment and the issue seems to be the optics block.
So i am using an instrument that uses laser induced fluorescence to detect molecules. The issue is that we have two instruments based in two sites, one in america (110V mains) and the other in europe (230V mains). We noticed that the european unit needs to have the laser gains increased a lot to be able to have a similar output as the american unit.
We are trying to design a universal calibration for the experiment to work equally in both sites.
Is it known if that difference in mains power would have such an effect on the laser output?
Otherwise what could be the issue?
