Abstract

We show that the AC-Stark shift (light-shift) is a powerful and versatile tool to control the emission of a photon-echo in the context of optical storage. As a proof-of-principle, we demonstrate that the photon-echo efficiency can be fully modulated by applying light-shift control pulses in an erbium-doped solid. The control of the echo emission is attributed to the spatial gradient induced by the light-shift beam.

Y 2 SiO 5 sample doped with 50 ppm of Er 3 + . At 1.8 K and under a 2 T magnetic field in the plane ( D 1 D 2 ), the coherence time is 130 μs ( I 15 / 2 4 I 13 / 2 4 transition for “site 1”) [28,30].

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Two-pulse photon echo sequence (dashed black line). We apply two strong pulses at t = 0 and t 12 = 35 μs (clipped by the oscilloscope scale). We observe an echo at 2 t 12 = 70 μs . The intensity is normalized so that the echo amplitude is 1. When a light-shift pulse detuned by 1.5 MHz (in solid red) is applied at t 12 / 2 = 17.5 μs , the echo intensity (solid black) is reduced from 100% to 30%. Inset: Reduction of the echo intensity as a function of the light-shift intensity I LS (the dashed line is used to guide the eye). Measurement errors are a few percents given by shot-to-shot fluctuations due to the laser jitter (they roughly correspond to the markers size).

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Echo intensity when the light-shift pulse detuning Δ is varied (square symbols). The experiment is repeated by varying Δ but by keeping τ / Δ = 2 μs / MHz constant so τ goes from 2 to 6 μs (circles). The dashed lines are used to guide the eye. Measurement errors are again a few percents.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Light-shift pulses compensation scheme. (a) If two pulses with opposite detunings are applied in region I, the echo intensity is 98% of its initial value. (b) With the same detuning, the effect of the light-shift is cumulative, and the echo is only 6%. When applied in region I and II, respectively, the pulses compensate each other with the same detuning [98% echo intensity in (c)] or add up with opposite detuning [3% echo intensity in (d)]. The light-shift pulses have a ± 1.5 - MHz detuning and a τ = 3 μs duration (as in Fig. 2).
