19 October 1983 High Frequency Optical Heterodyne Spectroscopy
Author Affiliations +
The progress over the last few years in the field of sub-Doppler saturated absorption spectroscopy has been greatly assisted by the development of new techniques for increasing sensitivity1-5. For many laboratory situations it is now routinely possible to achieve signal-to-noise ratios and sensitivities very near the quantum limit imposed by the fundamental statistical fluctuations (shot noise) of the probe laser beam.
