Abstract

We demonstrate frequency translation at microwatt pump power levels in Rubidium vapor confined to a hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber using four-wave mixing Bragg scattering. The 5S1/25D3/2 two-photon transition in Rb85 is employed for the four-wave mixing process. Using continuous-wave pump beams at 780 and 795 nm, a weak signal beam at 776 nm is translated to a wavelength of 762 nm with a 21% conversion efficiency at pump powers of 300 μW.
