Unexpected Doppler-free resonance in generalized double dark states Academic Article uri icon


  • Doppler-free resonances have been observed in Rb atomic vapor coherently driven by two strong-coupling fields in an intrinsically non-Doppler-free geometry. A four-level theoretical model explains the experimental results. The explanation of the physics is based on the interplay between coherences generated in a four-level system. 2002 The American Physical Society.
