Abstract
A new kind of active atomic line filter (ALF) using the thallium metastable state as an absorption medium is discussed. The basic principle underlying the operatiqn of a Tℓ-ALF is based on photodissociative excitation of TℓCℓ, or transfer excitation of Tℓ(2P3/2) in Tℓ-Cs mixtures. The operating wavelength of a Tℓ-ALF is at 535 nm which matches the wavelength of a frequency-doubled Nd-Bel laser. The results of modeling calculations and related experimental studies are presented.
