Abstract
Interaction of alkali atoms with external magnetic field induced a splitting and a shift of their energy levels. We have studied this interaction for external field from 0 to 5000 Gauss when the alkali vapor is confined in submicron thin vapor cell with thickness L = λ /2. Rubidium and Sodium vapors have been studied. The Hamiltonian can be expressed as the sum of the unperturbated atomic Hamiltonian and the so-called Zeeman Hamiltonian. The probability of a transition, induced by the laser electric field is proportional to the square of the transfer coefficients modified by the presence of the magnetic field. We will show that the strong nonlinearity of the transition intensities versus the external magnetic field intensity is obvious for B > 100 G. Some possible applications for Laser Spectroscopy of the Rb and the Na atoms are presented.
