Laser-induced photoionization and fluorescence signals were simultaneously observed in atomic samarium using two Nd:YAG-pumped dye lasers. Two-color, three-photon photoionization and two-color fluorescence signals were recorded simultaneously under similar experimental conditions and their dependence as a function of the second-step laser power was studied to understand the behavior of these signals. The laser-induced fluorescence and photoionization techniques have been used simultaneously for the first time to understand the behavior of these signals so that these techniques can be used efficiently in complementary manner to investigate the high-lying energy levels. The even-parity energy levels of atomic samarium in the energy region 36 510–36 875 cm-1 have been investigated based on these experiments. Total 21 high-lying even-parity energy levels have been identified and the two energy levels amongst them are reported as new energy levels after comparing our results with those reported in the literature.
