[2I12] Development of Tapered Amplifier Coupled ECDL System for Resonance Ionisation

*Stephen R Wells1, Yuta Yamamoto1, Shuichi Hasegawa1 (1. Univ. of Tokyo)

Keywords:calcium, reactor concrete, decommissioning, spectroscopy, ECDL, resonance ionisation

We describe the development of a laser system that targets the third step transition in a resonance ionisation scheme that selectively ionises the 41Ca isotope from a mixed sample. We intend for this technique to be used for improved spectroscopy leading to novel isotope identification and separation methods.
