Weatherill, K.J. and Pritchard, J.D. and Abel, R.P. and Bason, M.G. and Mohapatra, A.K. and Adams, C.S. (2008) 'Electromagnetically induced transparency of an interacting cold Rydberg ensemble.', Journal of physics B : atomic, molecular and optical physics., 41 (20). p. 201002.
We study electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) of a weakly interacting cold Rydberg gas. We show that for Rydberg states with principal quantum numbers in the range n = 19–26, the onset of interactions is manifest as a depopulation of the Rydberg state. In the limit of a weak probe where the depopulation effect is negligible, we observe no evidence of interaction-induced decoherence and obtain a narrow Rydberg dark resonance with a linewidth of <600 kHz.
