Non-linear Sagnac interferometry for pump-probe dispersion spectroscopy.

Jundt, G. and Purves, G. T. and Adams, C. S. and Hughes, I. G. (2003) 'Non-linear Sagnac interferometry for pump-probe dispersion spectroscopy.', European physical journal D., 27 (3). pp. 273-276.


We explore pump-probe non-linear Sagnac interferometry as a tool to measure the dispersive properties of a medium. We introduce the background theory, and show experimental spectra obtained on the D2 transition with 85Rb and 87Rb. The measured dispersion spectra are in excellent agreement with the Kramers-Kronig relations. In addition, as both beams traverse identical optical paths, Sagnac interferometry is very robust against mechanical vibration.
