Possibility of the use of the magnetic field for creating a quantum filter on the D 1 87Rb line Academic Article uri icon


  • The possibility of the use of the F = 2F = 1 transition of the D 1 absorption line of the 87Rb atom for creating of a single-photon quantum filter based on coherent population trapping (CPT) has been analyzed. It has been shown that the external magnetic field is necessary for ensuring the creation of the quantum filter on boson isotopes of alkali atoms. The field strength should be enough for the manifestation of the splitting of the Zeeman CPT resonances that is much larger than their spectral widths. The splittings of the CPT resonances, which characterize the nonlinearity of the Zeeman effect, have been measured for the 87Rb atom and the possibility of the use of this system for the quantum filter is concluded. 2008 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
