Abstract:

Work during this quarter has consisted of spectroscopic investigation of the laser emission from C-W argon, krypton, and xenon lasers and from the pulsed mercury-helium laser. The work with the noble gas ion lasers has indicated widths of 3,000 to 5,000 megacycles, with clearly resolved Zeeman splitting in fields over 700 gauss. The mercury measurements have resolved the isotope shift in the 6150 A line and indicated a line width of about 500 megacycles. Details of the exact wavelength measurement of the mercury wavelength are presented in this report. Author
