Intensity correlation and anti-correlations in coherently driven atomic vapor Academic Article uri icon


  • Motivated by the recent experiment [Sautenkov, V.A.; Rostovtsev, Yu.V.; Scully, M.O. Phys. Rev. A 2005, 72, 065801], we study the field intensity fluctuations due to interaction between a laser with a finite bandwidth and a dense atomic medium. The intensity-intensity cross-correlation of two orthogonal, circular polarized beams can be controlled by the applied external magnetic field. A smooth transition from perfect correlations to anti-correlations (at zero delay time) of the outgoing beams is observed. 2010 Taylor & Francis.
