Abstract

This paper presents preliminary experimental and theoretical results on two new aspects of sub-Doppler spectroscopy using resonant four-wave mixing and cw tunable dye lasers. The first technique uses degenerate four-wave mixing (DFWM) to study optically induced Zeeman coherences while the second technique uses nondegenerate FWM to study excited atomic states.
