Abstract

A scheme of two-dimensional (2D) atom localization based on the interference of double-dark resonances is proposed, in which the N-type atom interacts with two orthogonal standing-wave fields. Because of the spatial-dependent atom–field interaction, 2D atom localization can be realized via measuring the upper state population or the probe absorption. We obtain that the maximum probability of finding an atom at a particular position in a wavelength domain ( λ 1 × λ 2 ) is 1 / 2 when the atom is localized at the intersection of the antinodes of quadrants I and III of the standing-wave plane. This scheme shows more advantages than other schemes of 2D atom localization.
