An infrared absorption spectrometer has been constructed to measure the stable isotopic composition of atmospheric methane samples. The spectrometer employs periodically poled lithium niobate to generate 15 microW of tunable difference-frequency radiation from two near-infrared diode lasers that probe the nu3 rotational-vibrational band of methane at 3.4(More)
A calcium atomic beam has been decelerated by a single extended-cavity diode laser, frequency doubled to 423 nm. A potassium niobate crystal is placed in an external power buildup cavity, and the second-harmonic laser beam, counterpropagating with the atomic beam, is tuned into resonance with the strong 1S0-1P1 transition of calcium. For input power of 78(More)
