Laser-Induced Coherence Effects in Molecular Beam Optical-RF Double Resonance
Optical pumping, from its earliest days, has been used with rf magnetic or electric resonance to make precise measurements of atomic and molecular fine structure, hyperfine structure (hfs), and g-factors . Many such experiments have been performed in cells, where the molecules interact simultaneously with the light, the rf field, the walls, a buffer gas, each other, and in some cases free electrons. The resulting alteration of the rf resonance line profile must be accounted for in extracting the constants appropriate to an isolated molecule.
