Abstract

Saturation spectroscopy with resonance-ionization mass spectrometry detection was used to obtain Doppler-free spectra of the 2D°3/22D3/2 transition of lutetium at 22 125 cm−1 in unenriched, naturally occurring samples. Analysis of the spectra yielded the hyperfine coupling constants of 175Lu and 176Lu for this transition. Applications to isotopically selective photoionization and large-ratio isotopic analysis are discussed.
