1D atom localization via probe absorption spectrum in a four-level cascade-type atomic system
We present a simple scheme of atom localization in a subwavelength domain via manipulation of probe absorption spectrum in a four-level atomic system. Due to the joint quantum interference induced by the standing-wave and radio-frequency driving fields, the localization peak position and number as well as the conditional position probability can be controlled by properly adjusting the system parameters. The proposed scheme may provide a promising way to achieve high-precision and high-resolution 1D atom localization.
