Title: Generalization of one-atom detection

Abstract

Resonance ionization spectroscopy and its associated one-atom detection can now be used to detect selectively nearly all of the elements. A notation borrowed from nuclear physics is introduced to classify five basic laser schemes that are entered into the periodic table of the elements. Applications of one-atom detection have grown to include many examples in classical physics and chemistry, photophysics, and modern physics. The modern physics category includes the detection of a few atoms generated by solar neutrino interactions in large samples and other ultralow-level counting applications for environmental research and cosmochronology. 6 figures.
