Paper Abstract

Investigations of resonant spectral structures of four wave mixing (FWM) in molecular sodium are presented. For a double- (Lambda) configuration with strong-weak-strong-weak fields, split components in FWM spectra induced by the strong pump fields are observed. It is shown, that the split components merge into a single peak for a certain ratio of the strong field intensities. A strong correlation between the level splitting effect and saturation behavior of the FWM-signal is experimentally demonstrated.
