Violet diode laser in time-resolved stored-ion spectroscopy
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Physica Scripta
Förlag: Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences
Lifetime measurements of the metastable 3d D-2(3/2) level in singly charged calcium were performed using the newly developed violet diode laser operated in an external cavity arrangement. The laser was employed on stored ions at the CRYRING facility to optically pump the resonance line at 397 nm. In combination with laser probing at 866 nm this detection scheme gave the possibility to record the lifetime of this level. which has a radiative lifetime of about 1 s.
