7 March 2016 Signal revivals in pulsed Rydberg four-wave mixing in thermal ensembles
Author Affiliations +
We present resonant four-wave mixing (FWM) signals involving a Rydberg state in a thermal Rb vapor. The dynamic behavior of the FWM signals exhibits revival peaks shortly after the incident pulse, which are due to coherent collective emission among all Doppler classes. The FWM signals have dephasing times up to 7 ns, and strongly depend on the excitation bandwidth to the Rydberg state. Our numerical simulations based on a four-level model including the whole Doppler broadened ensemble can describe the data quite well.
