A device was developed for experimental research, in which the field of laser radiation with intensity, structured in space, is formed. It allows more a rational distribution of energy of laser radiation in space and strengthens the effect of light on atoms. The basic optical circuit of the experimental stand is submitted; the technique relies on a tabletop continuous argon laser, LGN-506, generating radiation of 4 W, at two wavelengths. The radiation in a strip of absorption was used on atoms, and a second beam was used for the control of isotope concentration distribution. The gradient of isotope concentration is continuously supervised with the help of an interference circuit. For the control of kinetics a concentration gradient is formed using a computer with an interface to photoreceivers. A quantitative determination of the isotope separation factor is carried out using the MCX-4 spectrometer. The technique of isotope separation is fulfilled with the help of Xe, which has stable isotopes 124, 126, 130, 131, 134, and 136. The strip of absorption of xenon coincides with the spectral range of argon laser generation which is 0.46-0.51 microns.
