Paper Abstract

The resolutions of the optical microscope and the optical lithography are both limited by the well-known Rayleigh limit. Rabi oscillation is a coherent nonlinear process that can modulate the population distribution between two energy states and also modulate the resonant fluorescence spectrum. If we have a gradient electric field amplitude in the space, the Rabi frequency for different position is also different. The spatial distribution of the population in the excited state can be modulated and the spatial information of the atoms can also be encoded in the resonant fluorescence spectrum. If the gradient of the field is large enough, the pattern generated can be subwavlength and the atoms with subwavelength distances can also be extracted. Here we present a review on both the subwavelength photolithography and microscopy via Rabi oscillations.
