Detection of carbon using amplified laser-induced fluorescence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Radiative lifetimes and stimulated emission have been studied in two-photon-excited carbon atoms. A strong fluorescence enhancement was detected in the direction of the exciting laser beam. Rate equations for the energy levels involved have been calculated in order to obtain number densities from the emitted light. Lifetimes were measured for the 2p3p 3p and 3D states and for the A 3[Pi]g state of the C2 molecule.
