Abstract

We study the phenomenon of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) in room-temperature Rb vapour under conditions of a strong probe laser. The atoms form a ladder system with the lower transition coupled by the probe laser and the upper transition coupled by the control laser. Density-matrix analysis of the system shows that, for zero-velocity atoms, the strong probe beam causes a reduction in absorption and broadening of the profile. But the lineshape after thermal averaging shows a splitting of the EIT resonance and enhanced absorption near line centre. The experimental observations in $^{85}Rb$ agree qualitatively with the predicted lineshapes.
