A New scheme for the laser isotope separation applicable to heavy elements

Yokoyama, Keiichi  ; Matsuoka, Leo; Kasajima, Tatsuya; Tsubouchi, Masaaki; Hashimoto, Masashi

Recent progress in laser science enables us precise manipulation of molecules by taking advantages of the wave nature of matter. These techniques are called coherent quantum control. Using coherent quantum control, a breakthrough in laser isotope separation may be realized. Actually, we proposed a novel scheme of isotope selective excitation, which is based on cascaded excitation of rotation in diatomic molecules. A numerical simulation done by solving a coupled Schroedinger equation for the cesium iodide molecule has shown that the separation factor reaches three orders of magnitude higher than that by the conventional scheme. The current status of the experimental demonstration undergoing in our institute will be introduced.
