Paper Abstract

A diode laser system for spectroscopy of cold Rb atoms is reported. The apparatus is mainly aimed at studying the electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) in cold environment. The system is based on a rubidium magneto-optical trap (MOT). Two additional extended cavity diode lasers provide the light beams for experimenting, e.g., a coupling- and probe- beam for EIT. The set-up is equipped with channels for detection of absorption and fluorescence. Some system elements of the ones made in our laboratory, in particular, the electronic system for data acquisition and for control of MOT and experiment, are presented in some detail. Records of probe beam absorption spectra of cold Rb, exhibiting profiles due to EIT in multilevel cascade scheme, registered by the use of this apparatus, are presented as an example of the setup performance.
