Effect of Magnetic Fields on Coherent Spectroscopy of Alkali Atoms
In this talk, I will present our theoretical research on the effect of various magnetic fields (MFs) on the coherence spectra of alkali atoms. The chosen coherent process is Coherence Population Trapping (CPT) which has a wide range of applications. The MFs whose effects have been investigated are static (dc) and oscillating (ac) fields, longitudinal (LMF) and transverse (TMF) to the light propagation direction, as well as a combination of several types of magnetic fields.
The effect of the different MFs has been analyzed both analytically and numerically. I will discuss the contributions of the various subsystems to the total absorption spectra in each case. The different effects of LMF and TMF will be shown and some ways of measuring them will be suggested
