Abstract Title: Coherent Blue Light Emission in Rubidium
Abstract: Using two external cavity diode lasers and a rubidium vapor cell we explore a four-wave mixing process that leads to the coherent emission of 420 nm light. The pump wavelengths, 780 nm and 776 nm, are within reach of typical diode laser systems. This project is well suited to undergraduate instruction and requires equipment that is often already available for other rubidium experiments such as saturated absorption spectroscopy or magneto-optical trapping.
