Two new schemes for achieving optical Ramsey resonance by use of gratings are suggested. They do not need a coincidence of the gratings’ period with the laser wavelength and permit the same gratings to be used for arbitrary optical transition. A theoretical description for the Gaussian shapes of laser beams and for arbitrary saturation is given.
