Abstract

The existence of crossover resonances makes saturated-absorption (SA) spectra very complicated when external magnetic field B is applied. It is demonstrated for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, that the use of micrometric-thin cells (MTCs, L40μm) allows application of SA for quantitative studies of frequency splitting and shifts of the Rb atomic transitions in a wide range of external magnetic fields, from 0.2 up to 6 kG (20–600 mT). We compare the SA spectra obtained with the MTC with those obtained with other techniques and present applications for optical magnetometry with micrometer spatial resolution and a broadly tunable optical frequency lock.

(a) Sketch of the experimental setup. ECDL is the diode laser; FI, Faraday isolator, PM, permanent magnet, λ/4, quarter waveplate; PBS, polarization beam splitter; PD, photodetectors; F, filter; M, mirror. (b) Energy level diagram of the D1 line of the Rb87 (left) and Rb85 (right) in a magnetic field with the σ+ transitions of nonvanishing probability in the BG regime.

Fig. 2.

Rb D1 line SA spectrum in the intermediate fields of 1075 G (upper curve) and 500 G (middle curve). Laser power is 1 mW. The lower curve is the reference.

Fig. 3.

Comparison of spectra for B=2.2kG obtained with the NTC with thickness L=λ/2 (upper blue curve, laser power 50 μW) and SA spectroscopy (middle red curve) in the MTC (laser power 1 mW). The lowest curve is the reference.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Comparison of spectra for B=5.6kG obtained with the NTC with the thickness L=λ (upper curve) and SA spectroscopy (middle curve) in the MTC with L=40μm. Laser power is 1 mW. The lowest curve is the reference. The change in the transmission for VSOP-1 resonance is around 1% in the MTC, while it is 1 order of magnitude lower in the NTC (see Ref. [9], Fig. 3).

Frequency shifts of the resonances labeled 1–3 [see Fig. 1(b)] in the magnetic field. Solid lines represent the theory, and symbols correspond to the experimental results.

Fig. 6.
Fig. 6.

SA spectrum of the rubidium D2 line in the MTC in B=2.2kG (upper red curve). Bottom (black) trace is the reference cell spectroscopy in B=0. The resonance indicated by the dashed line was used for frequency stabilization of the diode laser. The inset graph shows the beat-note signal against a second, frequency-locked (dotted line) laser.
