Paper Abstract

We present an experimental study of fine structure (fs)- mixing in the 52D state of Rb, and details of construction and performance of an external cavity cw diode laser, developed to provide a light source at 778 nm for two-photon excitation of Rb(52D). Cross section for the fs-mixing Rb(52D5/2) yields Rb(52D3/2) in collisions with the ground state Rb(52S1/2) atoms was found to be 5.8 +/- 1.9 (DOT) 10-14 cm2.
