We report experimental realization of a rudimentary atomic Šolc filter, recently proposed by Hong [Opt. Express1094-408710.1364/OE.17.015455 17, 15455 (2009)]. It is realized by employing a bipolar atom-cavity coupling constant in the cavity-QED microlaser operating with a TEM10 mode in a strong coupling regime. The polarity flip in the coupling constant dramatically changes the photoemission probability of a two-level atom relative to unipolar coupling, resulting in multiple narrow emission bands in the detuning curve of the microlaser mean photon number. The observed resonance curves are explained well by a two-step, three-dimensional, geodesic-like motion of the Bloch vector in the semiclassical limit.
