SELECTED PAPERS AND BOOKS ON LASER DEVELOPMENT FOR HIGH RESOLUTION SPECTROSCOPY AND ATOMIC VAPOR LASER ISOTOPE SEPARATION (AVLIS) APPLICATIONS IN THE VISIBLE AND NEAR INFRARED
Various books, reviews, and publications describe in detail the AVLIS
technique. The selected bibliography, given here, deals primarily with the lasers
applicable to this field. This emphasizes the fact that tunable
narrow-linewidth lasers, in the visible, are useful in a plethora of applications:
from fundamental physics to medicine. As an example, it should be mentioned that, lasers developed
for AVLIS, in the visible, are also useful to laser guide star applications
