report is the 14th in a series on Spectrochemical Methods of Analysis issued
by IUPAC Commission V.4. Because of the complexity and the lack of uniformity
of the present nomenclature (e.g. "2 step excited resonance fluorescence",
"resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization", etc.) a new way is
needed to describe these transitions. The aim of this document is therefore
to present a new notation, the IUPAC Notation, to describe the various processes
involved in atomic laser spectroscopy. Using a few assumptions as detailed
below, this notation has the advantage of being simple and systematic. States
and processes can be described in a general way irrespective of the type of
