ABSTRACT
By experimental exploration of the so-called λ-Zeeman technique based on Rb nano-cell use we reveal for the first time a strong modification of the probabilities of Rb D line F = 1 → F = 0, 1, 2, 3 atomic transitions, including 'forbidden' F = 1, m = 0 → F = 1, m = 0 and F = 1, m = −1 → F = 3, m = −1 transitions (these are 'forbidden' transitions when B = 0) in a strong external magnetic field B in the range of 100−1100 G. For π-polarized exciting diode laser radiation ( λ = 780 nm) these 'forbidden' transitions at B > 150 G are among the strongest atomic transitions in the detected transmission spectra. The frequency shifts of the individual hyperfine transitions versus magnetic field are also presented: particularly, F = 1, m = +1 → F = 1, m = +1 atomic transition has a unique behavior, since its frequency remains practically unchanged when B varies from 100 to 1100 G. The developed theoretical model well describes the experiment.
