Amplitude and linewidts of the Hanle EIA, obtained from transmission of the laser locked to closed Fg Fe = Fg + 1 transitions in 85Rb and 87Rb, have maximum values at few mW/cm2. Amplitude of the EIA reaches steady value different from zero for higher laser intensities, even for laser intensities of 40 mW/cm2. Theoretical model of EIA, for the same atomic system as in the experiment, show that the laser intensity, at which maximum of amplitudes and widths occur, depends on the laser detuning. For smaller laser detuning of a few tens of MHz, EIA has a maximum and then vanishes at higher laser intensities. For larger laser detuning of the order of hundreds MHz (but still in the range of Doppler broadening) amplitude of the EIA has very broad maximum and remains above zero for intensities above 40 mW/cm2. Such theoretical results indicate that Hanle absorption peak remains in the experimental results, regardless of the laser intensities, due to Doppler effect.
