Paper Abstract

A simple model of the Voigt spectral profile is employed to analyze the influence of the sizes of a vapor cell on the shape of the spectral contour of the linear susceptibility. The width of a resonant spectral line observed in transmission and absorption spectra measured with such a vapor cell is shown to tend to the natural width as one of the sizes of the vapor cell approaches the wavelength of the spectral line, thus opening the way to extend the Romer- Dicke pillbox-cavity approach to microwave spectroscopy to the optical range. The possibility of using (lambda) -thick vapor cells, as well as one- and two-dimensional photonic band-gap structures for high resolution measurements is discussed.
