Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a theoretical study of the effect of a microwave field on an EIT feature. The EIT feature is associated with the well-known three-level Λ type configuration where a pump and probe laser field couples two separate optical transitions. In addition to these two laser fields, there is a microwave field which drives one of the two lower levels of the Λ type three-level system to another hyperfine level. The EIT feature is studied as a function of microwave field frequency and intensity. Our results show that the presence of a microwave field can dramatically modify the EIT feature. When microwave is resonant with the hyperfine transition, the EIT feature can be split into two EIT features. When it is off resonant with the hyperfine transition, it causes a frequency shift of the EIT feature, reminiscent of the well-known light shift effect.
