Precision atomic beam density characterization by diode laser absorption spectroscopy.

Experimental and theoretical details of a simple technique to determine absolute line-of-sight integrated atomic beam densities based on resonant laser absorption are provided and should allow the method to be easily implemented in most atomic or molecular beam apparatuses.

Sources for Laser Spectroscopy

Since the initial development of the laser in the early 1960’s, almost all lasers have been applied in spectroscopic experiments of one form or another. Many of the laser sources first developed,

Applications of midinfrared quantum cascade lasers to spectroscopy

We review the use of both pulsed and continuous wave quantum cascade lasers in high-resolution spectroscopic studies of gas phase species. In particular, the application of pulsed systems for probing

Doppler-free spectroscopy and collisional studies with tunable diode lasers of lithium isotopes in a heat-pipe oven

The spectra of the 2s–2p lithium transitions were studied in an atomic-lithium vapor–argon-gas mixture by a Doppler-free saturation amplitude modulation spectroscopy technique that employs a tunable

Sub-Doppler spectroscopy with an external cavity quantum cascade laser

The linewidth of an external cavity quantum cascade laser is studied as a function of injection current and laser scan rate. The laser linewidth is inferred to be ca. 2.5 MHz from Lamb-dip spectra on

Design and development of an external cavity diode laser for laser cooling and spectroscopy applications

External cavity diode lasers are used increasingly as sources of light in applications ranging from industrial photonic systems to basic laboratory research on the interaction of light and atoms.

High-resolution laser spectrometer for fundamental and applied research

The first Russian high-resolution tunable laser spectrometer based on a high-power cw Ar+ pump laser is briefly described. The spectrometer is intended for precise nuclear physics investigations of

Accurate spectroscopic wavelength determination of pulsed lasers

We present a simple, easy, and straightforward spectroscopic approach for the determination of the wavelength of pulsed laser systems with an accuracy of ≤0.006 cm-1 (180 MHz). This is better than
