Short summary
The combination of magnetic resonance with laser spectroscopy provides some interesting options for increasing the sensitivity and information content of magnetic resonance by many orders of magnitude. This review covers the basic physics behind the relevant processes, such as angular momentum conservation during absorption and emission.
