Abstract

Magnetic resonance of sodium fluorescence is studied with varying laser intensity, duty cycle, and field strength. A magnetometer based on a sodium vapor cell filled with He buffer gas is demonstrated, using a single amplitude-modulated laser beam. With a 589 nm laser tuned at the D1 or D2 line, the magnetic field is inferred from the variation of fluorescence. A magnetic field sensitivity of 150  pT/Hz is achieved at the D1 line. The work is an important step toward sensitive remote magnetometry with mesospheric sodium.
