Sargsyan, Armen and Papoyan, Aram and Hughes, Ifan G. and Adams, Charles S. and Sarkisyan, David (2017) 'Selective reflection from an Rb layer with a thickness below λ/12 and applications.', Optics letters., 42 (8). pp. 1476-1479.
We have studied the peculiarities of selective reflection from an Rb vapor cell with a thickness L < 70 nm, which is smaller than the length scale of evanescent fields λ∕2π and more than an order of magnitude smaller than the optical wavelength. A 240 MHz redshift due to the atom-surface interaction is observed for a cell thickness of L 40 nm. In addition, complete frequency-resolved hyperfine Paschen– Back splitting of atomic transitions to four components for 87Rb and six components for 87Rb is recorded in a strong magnetic field (B > 2 kG).
