Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Studies of alkaline earth oxide and monohalide molecules using laser induced photoluminescence spectroscopy (MgO), tunable laser excitation spectroscopy (CaCl), laser-laser double resonance spectroscopy (CaCl) and microwave-laser double resonance spectroscopy (BaO) are discussed and summarized. The advantages of these laser techniques over conventional methods of obtaining and assigning optical spectra are emphasized.
