Laser isotope separation


Laser isotope separation

Laser isotope separation, or laser enrichment, is a technology of isotope separation using selective ionization of atoms or molecules by the means of precisely tuned lasers.

The techniques are:
* AVLIS, applied to atoms, and
* MLIS, applied to molecules.
