Abstract

The method of collinear laser photoionization of atoms in a modulated fast beam is used to detect the rare isotope 3He, with high-repetition-rate lasers being applied to improve the detection sensitivity. The method has made it possible to detect 3He at relative abundances as low as 10−9.
