Abstract

An experimental and theoretical study of end resonances of alkali-metal vapors was performed. The end resonances have much stronger signals than the 0-0 resonance, and are readily detectable in cells with high buffer-gas pressure. The hyperfine sublevels of the ground state of a typical alkali-metal atom were also studied. It is observed that the microwave end resonances of highly spin-polarized alkali-metal vapors have exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratios than the 0-0 resonance.
