Paper Abstract

Isotope separation has been achieved by tunable lasers involving both electronic transitions in atoms and vibrational transitions in molecules. A variety of lasers have been used for spectroscopic studies to identify the isotopic shifts and others for either selective excitation of transitions or for selective photodissociation of molecules. The classes of tunable lasers that are reviewed include dye lasers, semiconductor lasers, tunable gas lasers, spin-flip Raman lasers, parametric oscillators and frequency mixing in nonlinear crystals.
