Abstract

Light propagating through an optically anisotropic resonant medium excites coherent Raman fields that propagate together with the original wave; the interference between the two fields generates the well-known Raman beats. We solve the coupled-wave equations for finite optical path lengths and show how the coherent exchange of energy between the two fields leads to interference effects that distort the observed signal for different detection schemes. Theoretical analysis is compared with experimental results from the Na D1 transition.
