Autler-Townes effect in double optical resonance

H. R. Gray and C. R. Stroud, Jr.

Opt. Comm. 25, 359 (1978).


Two frequency stabilised dye lasers and a sodium atomic beam are used to study the Autler-Townes effect in the aligned 3S1/2, F=2, MF=2 to 3P3/2, F=3, MF=3, to 4D5/2, F=4, MF=4 states. This system is to a very good approximation an isolated three-level atom. The Autler-Townes doublet splittings are measured as a function of the intensities of the two lasers and their detunings from resonance.
