Basic properties and types of lasers radiationless transition Fig. 9. Pumping process, radiationless transition, and laser transition of a three-level atom, where the upper transition leads to laser action. electron of the atom in the ground state 1 is excited into a state 3. This excitation can be done by an irradiation of the atom by pump light with a frequency corresponding to the transition frequency from level 1 to level 3 (optical pumping according to Kastler).
We call these states S-states (singulet states). In the second case the spin of the excited electron is parallel to that of the remaining molecule. The total spin equals 1 and we are speaking of triplet states. Both kinds of states are further split due to molecular vibrations. The levels are represented in fig. 19 by heavy lines. Finally a still finer splitting exists. It stems from the rotation of the molecules which, according to quantum theory, is quantized. In usual experimental setups the dye molecules are in solution.
L. L. 3. e. accelerated, charges give rise to the emission of electromagnetic waves. By means of the collective emission by many electrons, laser action may become possible. The advantage of this system which has been realized, for instance, at the linear accelerator of Stanford University, is its tunability, which cculd be reached by a continuous variation of the magnetic field strength. X-ray and y-ray lasers Due to the many applications of laser light it is, of course, highly desirable to build lasers with very short wave-lengths.
