Abstract

The temperature dependence of the spectral profile of the 87Rb D1 line (λ = 794.8 nm) observed by a Fabry-Perot interferometer has been discussed by considering the self-absorption mechanism in the lamp. The Rb lamp is assumed to be composed of two separated portions: One is a spherical core of emitting Rb atoms and the other is an outer layer of the same kind of absorbing atoms surrounding the core. The temperature dependence of the emitted light intensity, intensity difference between two hyperfine peaks, and asymmetry of the self-absorbed profiles are systematically explained in the temperature range of 75 to 125°C. The equivalent absorbing atom layer near the lamp surface is estimated to be 0.5 mm in this model
