Similar double resonance experiments using the 496.5 nm line of an $Ar^{+}$ laser have been $reported.^{1,2}$ The laser is frequency stabilized and fine tuned with two internal etalons and operates in a single longitudinal mode with power near 50 milliwatts. A procedure has been developed to tune the laser to the wavelength of any molecular absorption line in the 565-620 nm spectral region. With occasional adjustment the laser will neither drift nor jump off of the desired molecular line. en_US dc.format.extent 188859 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title A CW DYE LASER FOR MICROWAVE OPTICAL DOUBLE RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY en_US dc.type article en_US
