Spectral narrowing via quantum coherence Academic Article uri icon


  • We have studied the transmission through an optically thick Rb87 vapor that is illuminated by monochromatic and noise-broadened laser fields in configuration. The spectral width of the beat signal between the two fields after transmission through the atomic medium is more than 1000 times narrower than the spectral width of this signal before the medium. 2006 The American Physical Society.
