Paper Abstract

The paper presents theoretical analysis of a Raman velocity selection of three-level atoms in a field of two counterpropagating light waves with time-modulated amplitudes. We demonstrate that in this case additional resonances appear in the atomic velocity distribution on the velocity values corresponding to the frequency of modulation. We have discussed a possible application of such coherent technique in atomic optics for efficient splitting of an atomic wave packet.
