Laser Spectroscopy

  • Sune Svanberg
Part of the Springer Series on Atoms+Plasmas book series (SSAOPP, volume 6)


The wide applicability of lasers in spectroscopy is due to several factors. As we have seen, yery high intensities can be obtained in a small frequency interval. The favourable spatial properties of laser beams with the possibility of very good focussing is also of great importance. With the advent of tunable lasers, completely new types of experiments have become possible and investigations that were only barely possible with conventional light sources can now be readily performed. It is fair to state that tunable lasers have revolutionized optical spectroscopy. Several monographs and review articles on laser spectroscopy have been published [9.1–18]. A wealth of material is presented in the proceedings of international laser spectroscopy conferences [9.19–27].
