Four-wave mixing of optical and microwave fields. Academic Article uri icon


  • We demonstrate degenerate four-wave mixing involving both optical and microwave fields. This four-wave mixing process, with fields that differ in frequency by 5 orders of magnitude, results from stimulated Raman scattering of the optical field from an atomic ground-state Zeeman coherence in warm rubidium vapor, which is induced and maintained by the microwave field.
