Using laser cooled samples of <sup>85</sup>Rb and <sup>87</sup>Rb in a magneto-optical trap, high resolution spectroscopy of the two-photon transitions 5S<sub>1/2</sub>-5D<sub>3/2</sub>, 5S<sub>1/2</sub>-5D<sub>5/2</sub>and 5S<sub>1/2</sub>-7S<sub>1/2</sub> have been investigated using the output from a mode-locked titanium sapphire laser. The hyperfine constants for the 7S terms of both isotopes have been measured with improved accuracy.
