Buffer-gas-assisted polarization spectroscopy of Li6

Abstract

We report on the demonstration of Doppler-free polarization spectroscopy of the D2 line of Li6 atoms. Counterintuitively, the presence of an Ar buffer gas, in a certain pressure range, causes a drastic enhancement of the polarization rotation signal. The observed dependence of the signal amplitude on the Ar buffer pressure and the pump laser power is reproduced by calculations based on simple rate equations. We performed stable laser frequency locking using a dispersion signal obtained by polarization spectroscopy for laser cooling of Li6 atoms.
