Scientific research in Pakistan on laser isotope separation is the subject of a new open source bibliography (pdf) compiled by independent researcher Mark Gorwitz.

“It should be noted that they are using this technology to separate Lithium-6 which can be used in advanced nuclear weapons designs,” Mr. Gorwitz said. “They have also done research on uranium spectroscopy, which could be an indication they are looking at uranium enrichment by the laser method.”
