Paper Abstract

The detection of gas phase atoms from a caesium source has been demonstrated by two photon resonant ionisation spectroscopy (2RPI). An excimer pumped dye laser system was used in conjunction with a proportional counter, operated at low pressure. Two photon ionisation spectra of caesium have been recorded in the 455-460nm region with the two prominent transitions at 455.5 and 459.3nm being well resolved. The dependence of the widths and relative intensities of the two transitions on incident laser fluence has been investigated.
