Paper Abstract

In this paper several detection techniques of laser spectroscopy are presented which are illustrated by some examples. They are either based on modified absorption spectroscopy with frequency- or wavelength modulation, on opto-acoustic and opto-thermal spectroscopy, on laser-induced fluorescence or on resonant two-photon ionization. Their advantages and limitations are discussed and possible further improvements are proposed. They are illustrated by several examples, such as overtone spectroscopy of ozone O3, carbon disulfid CS2, opto-acoustic spectroscopy of carbonyl sulfid OCS, by Doppler-free opto-thermal spectroscopy of ethylen C2H4 and by Doppler-free laser spectroscopy of the small alkali trimers Li3 and Na3 detected by resonant two photon ionization.
