Polarization spectroscopy and magnetically-induced dichroism of the potassium D2 lines.

Abstract

We study modulation-free methods for producing sub-Doppler, dispersive line shapes for laser stabilization near the potassium D(2) transitions at 767 nm. Polarization spectroscopy is performed and a comparison is made between the use of a mirror or beam splitter for aligning the counter-propagating pump and probe beams. Conventional magnetically-induced… (More)
