The self-broadening rate coefficients of the cesium D1 [62S12 − 62P12] and D2 [62S12 − 62P32] resonance lines are determined from the 62P12 → 62D32, 62P32 → 72D32 and 62P32 → 72D52 transition lineshapes, which are mapped out using single-mode cw lasers. The self-broadening rates are found from Voigt function fits (including hyperfine structure) to the experimental lineshapes. Our measured D1 and D2 broadening coefficients, kbr(D1) = (5.7 ± 1.0) × 10−7 cm3 sec−1 and kbr(D2) = (6.7 ± 1.1) × 10−7… CONTINUE READING
