A High-Temperature Oven for Laser Spectroscopy

A commercial heat-pipe oven (HPO) was modified to extend the useful temperature range from 700°C to ∼1700°C. The utility of the modified heat pipe oven as an atom source for spectroscopy is demonstrated with a laser atomic absorption study of the hyperfine splitting of Tm (m.p. 1545°C).
