Title: Nuclear isomer separation

Abstract

Pure specimens of nuclear isomers are required for gamma-ray lasers. Atoms containing isomeric nuclei of /sup 197/Hg are selectively photoionized. The isomers were produced by the /sup 197/Au(d,2n)/sup 197/Hg reaction and distilled. Three pulsed dye lasers were used to selectively ionize mercury atoms by doubly resonant three-step photoionization. Other isomer separation techniques and their limitations are discussed. 7 refs., 4 figs.
