Resonant coherent transients in a gas in the standing-wave field

Abstract

Polarization decay in the presence of a standing electromagnetic wave field at a Doppler broadened transition is investigated theoretically and experimentally. It is shown that in the direction opposite to the propagation of an excited pulse the polarization decays at a transition frequency rather than at an exciting field frequency as usual. This permits the use of transients both in studies of relaxation processes and in Doppler-free super-high resolution spectroscopy. A resonant coherent transient has been used in measurements of relaxation decay constants of a dipole moment for collisions in SF6 (λ=10.6μm). This method has enabled one to resolve reliably the structure of theQ(38) transition (λ=10.6μm) of theF 1 0 +E 0=F 2 0 line of the 0→v 3 band in SF6 within a Doppler absorption line.
