Coherent Population Trapping Resonances in Cs Atomic Vapor Layers of Micrometric Thickness

Figure 9

Illustration of the atomic population distribution between the Zeeman sublevels of the ground level (a) and of the excited level (b), for the transition. The collision rate leading to the population density redistribution used is of 10 MHz. Note the essential change in the atomic population distribution on the ground level magnetic sublevels compared to the case of the absence of elastic interactions (Figure 6).
