    • Abstract

       

      The acronym MLIS (molecular laser isotope separation) defines the laser process whereby the isotopes of uranium can be separated by mid-infrared laser/s when the molecule employed is UF6. The theoretical and spectroscopical data to configure and enable experiments and demonstrations in the laboratory is adequate. However, the engineering and commercial aspects require innovative technology solutions that are not presently available in the literature on these topics. This paper is an overview of the most salient features of MLIS and its potential utility at an industrial level.
