Abstract
We have studied experimentally and theoretically Hanle EIA on the closed Fg = 3 goes to Fe = 4 D2 transition of 85Rb. Atoms were excited by the laser light with different polarization, from linear to circular. Results of the theoretical calculations of the laser transmission, based on optical Bloch equations for density matrix elements for the same atomic system, show important effects of magnetic field transverse to the laser light. We were not able to control transverse magnetic field in the experiment but the theoretical results are still applicable to our experimental data due the presence of laboratory stray magnetic field in the vicinity of the Rb cell, occurring because of imperfect magnetic shielding.
