Calculations are done to determine the specifications for an optical build up cavity which will produce the largest fraction of metastable krypton atoms using a two-photon transition with 215 nm light. Four different models are used from constant intensity and root-mean-square velocity to gaussian intensity and Maxwell speed distribution. A Ti:Sapphire laser is operated and internally stabilized. The theory of sub-Doppler spectroscopy is discussed.
