Sublevel echoes selectively excited by light-pulse trains: synchronized-quantum-beat echoes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We report on a new type of sublevel echoes, synchronized-quantum-beat (SQB) echoes, generated by a successive application of two resonant light-pulse trains. The echoes are selectively generated for a sublevel pair whose frequency splitting is equal to an integral multiple of the repetition frequency of the light pulses. By using mode-locked laser pulses tuned to the D1 transition, we observed SQB echoes (and free induction decay) for all Zeeman and hyperfine transitions in the ground state of sodium atoms in low magnetic fields.
