Abstract
Pulsed coherent population trapping in atomic vapor provides a convenient method for generating frequency narrowed atomic resonance using Ramsey interference. Here, we present our experimental results showing high-contrast and sub-kilohertz Ramsey interference fringes produced by coherently prepared 85Rb atoms using Raman excitation formed in D1 line transitions. A test system for atomic clock has been constructed to measure light shift for both continuous and pulsed Raman excitation cases. Our measurements show that light shift measured using pulsed Raman excitation, is reduced compared to the continuous excitation case. Our ability to measure light shift is currently limited by the resolution of the frequency counter, and performance of the locking electronics used.
