Abstract

We describe what is to our knowledge the first experimental demonstration of internal wavelength conversion in the metastable Mg atomic filter. The filter operates at a Fraunhofer line, thereby offering intrinsic solar background rejection. Incoming green Fraunhofer photons (518 nm) are absorbed by metastable Mg atoms in an oven cell and are converted into UV (384-nm) photons. We observed a green-to-UV conversion efficiency of greater than 50%.
