Abstract

N -type resonances excited in rubidium atoms confined in micrometric-thin cells with variable thickness from 1 μm to 2 mm are studied experimentally for the cases of a pure Rb atomic vapor and of a vapor with neon buffer gas. Good contrast and narrow linewidth were obtained for thicknesses as low as 30 μm. The higher amplitude and sharper profile of N -type resonances in the case of a buffered cell was exploited to study the splitting of the Rb 85 D 1 N -resonance in a magnetic field of up to 2200 G. The results are fully consistent with the theory. The mechanism responsible for forming N -resonances is discussed. Possible applications are addressed.
