Abstract
We consider a gas of two-level atoms of two species (for example, natural Rb vapor consisting of two isotopes) in the field of laser radiation tuned close to resonance with the certain transition of a specific iostope. This radiation may turn to be rather close to a near lying transition of other isotope (within the linewidth of laser radiation), so it is necessary to take into account the possibility of excitation of other isotope in order to evaluate the enrichment degree if it is aimed at the isotope separation by means of selective excitation with subsequent chemcial reaction (in our example the rubidium hydride formation) of the excited isotope which is believed to take place at a rate much higher than that in the ground state of the atom.
