Abstract

The use of rubidium to demonstrate optical phase conjugation with high efficiency and fast response is investigated. The hyperfine manifold of rubidium is similar to that of sodium, which was previously used together with dye lasers to demonstrate optical phase conjugation via hyperfine coherence gratings induced by coherent population trapping (CPT). In the case of Rb, CPT between Zeeman sublevels of a single ground hyperfine state to ensure the ease of filtering the desired probe beam, spectrally as well as spatially. The conjugate intensity depends on the laser detuning. The Zeeman linewidth and the conjugate polarization are in good agreement with theoretical models for this interaction.
