  • We present a detailed spectroscopic investigation of a thermal 87 Rb atomic vapour in magnetic fields up to 0.4T in the Voigt geometry. We fit experimental spectra with our theoretical model ElecSus and find excellent quantitative agreement, with RMS errors of backsim0.3%. We extract the magnetic field strength and the angle between the polarisation of the light and the magnetic field from the atomic signal and find excellent agreement to within backsim1% with a commercial Hall probe. Finally… CONTINUE READING
