Spectroscopy using thermionic diode detectors

  • K. Niemax
Invited Paper

Abstract

The basic principles of the thermionic diode technique and the potential of the detector in laser spectroscopy are discussed. Furthermore different types of set-ups, effective detection schemes and hints for the construction and preparation of thermionic diodes are given.
