Abstract

We demonstrate electromagnetically induced transparency in a four-level cascade system where the upper level is a Rydberg state. The observed spectral features are sub-Doppler and can be enhanced due to the compensation of Doppler shifts with AC Stark shifts. A theoretical description of the system is developed that agrees well with the experimental results, and an expression for the optimum parameters is derived.

Top: Absorption coefficient per velocity classes from the four-level model for different values of Ω d / Ω c , (a) 0.6, (b) 1.2, and (c) 2.5. At the optimum ratio of 1.2 [calculated from Eq. (7)], the bright state is insensitive to the atomic velocity. Bottom: Typical experimental spectra with fits from the full theoretical model for different values of dressing laser power P d , (d) 17.4 μW, (e) 79.7 μW, and (f) 345.2 μW. Experimental parameters fixed at P p = 20 nW , P c = 41.4 mW , and Δ p = Δ d = 0 MHz .

Maximum change in transmission (red squares) and transparency splitting (blue circles) as a function of P d . The solid (red) line is the theoretical calculation from the full model. The dashed (blue) line is a scaling fit with power. The optimum ratio of Ω d / Ω c occurs at P d = 79.7 μW .
