Abstract

A two-photon transition in cold Rb atoms will be probed with a phase-coherent wide-bandwidth femtosecond laser comb. Frequency domain analysis yields a high resolution picture where phase coherence among various transition pathways through different intermediate states produces interference effects on the resonantly-enhanced transition probability. This result is supported by the time domain Ramsey interference effect. The two-photon transition spectrum is analyzed in terms of the pulse repetition rate and carrier frequency offset, leading to a cold-atom-based frequency stabilization scheme for both degrees of freedom of the femtosecond laser.
