Isotope selective photoionization of calcium using two-step laser excitation

Abstract

The isotope specific two-step photoionization of metastable Ca atoms was investigated using a continuous wave dye laser and an Ar+ laser. The photoionization was performed via a transition to an autoionizing state. Therefore an ionization probability as high as 10−2 could be obtained.
