Laser Spectroscopy of Collision Processes

  • Wolfgang Demtröder
Part of the Advanced Texts in Physics book series (ADTP)


The two main sources of information about atomic and molecular structure and interatomic interactions are provided by spectroscopic measurements and by the investigation of elastic, inelastic, or reactive collision processes. For a long time these two branches of experimental research developed along separate lines without a strong mutual interaction. The main contributions of classical spectroscopy to the study of collision processes have been the investigations of collision-induced spectral line broadening and line shifts (Sect. 3.3).
