ABSTRACT
An AlGaAs diode laser oscillating in a single Fabry–Perot mode with strong relaxation sidebands is observed to separate the two naturally occurring isotopes of rubidium by means of light-induced drift at much lower powers than has been reported with a single-mode ring dye laser. The sideband frequency displacement is approximately equal to the ground-state hyperfine splitting, so that optical hyperfine pumping is largely eliminated.

The mirrors of the laser and the external mirrors were produced using a microcleaving facets process. Results emphasize stabilization of the longitudinal mode spectrum by the external cavity action.
