Abstract

Theoretical and experimental studies of photon-echo modulation for the four σ transitions of the R1 line in ruby with an on-axis magnetic field are described. Echoes originating from the Cr3+ ground-state 4A2 (−3/2) spin level (−3/2 echo) are studied for the first time. Unlike ±½ echoes, the −3/2-echo modulation is found to be dominated by Cr-Al interactions occurring outside the 13 inner-shell ions. The +½-echo modulation is observed to be in major disagreement with the theory using previously determined superhyperfine parameters. Regression-analysis studies indicate that this cannot be due solely to parameter errors. Finite nuclear linewidths and/or optical pumping effects are shown to be a plausible source of the disagreement.
