Laser High-Resolution Spectroscopy

  • W. Demtröder
Part of the Physics of Atoms and Molecules book series (PAMO)

Abstract

One of the essential limitations imposed on experimental information about finer details of atomic structure is determined by the attainable spectral resolution.

Keywords

Laser Spectroscopy Atomic Beam Atomic Transition Doppler Width Laser Linewidth 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
