High Resolution Spectroscopy by Means of Tunable Lasers and Atomic Beams

  • Pierre Jacquinot


The subject to be treated here is the intersection of three wider domains and we shall restrict ourselves to what is really specific to this intersection. Excellent review articles have been published on the broader aspects (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) and most of their content will be supposed to be known, for instance the general properties of dye lasers or the principles of non linear spectroscopy. As a rule the references cited in these articles will not be repeated here, except for publications referring specifically to our discussion.
