Abstract

Amplitude and linewidts of the Hanle EIA, obtained from transmission of the laser locked to closed FgFe = Fg + 1 transitions in 85Rb and 87Rb, have maximum values at few mW/cm2. Amplitude of the EIA reaches steady value different from zero for higher laser intensities, even for laser intensities of 40 mW/cm2. Theoretical model of EIA, for the same atomic system as in the experiment, show that the laser intensity, at which maximum of amplitudes and widths occur, depends on the laser detuning. For smaller laser detuning of a few tens of MHz, EIA has a maximum and then vanishes at higher laser intensities. For larger laser detuning of the order of hundreds MHz (but still in the range of Doppler broadening) amplitude of the EIA has very broad maximum and remains above zero for intensities above 40 mW/cm2. Such theoretical results indicate that Hanle absorption peak remains in the experimental results, regardless of the laser intensities, due to Doppler effect.

Ratio of transmitted and input laser intensities as a function of the input laser beam intensity for: a)vacuum 87Rb cell of 1 cm length (the laser is locked to the Fg = 2 → Fe = 3) and b) vacuum Rb cell of 8 cm length (the laser is locked to the Fg = 3 → Fe = 4), at room temperature at B = 0. Solid lines are drawn to guide the eye.

Calculated (a) amplitude and (b) width of the EIA as a function of the laser intensity when input light is near-resonant to Fg = 3 → Fe = 4 transition in 85Rb. Maximum of both EIA amplitude and width shifts to higher laser intensities as the laser detuning takes values 3,5,10,15 and 20 MHz.
