It is experimentally demonstrated that the use of an extremely thin cell (ETC)
with the thickness of Rb atomic vapor column of 400 nm allows one to resolve a
large number of individual transitions between Zeeman sublevels of D1 line of 87Rb
and 85Rb in the sub-Doppler fluorescence excitation spectra in an external magnetic
field of 200 G. It is revealed that due to the peculiarities of Zeeman effect for
different hyperfine levels of Rb all allowed transitions between magnetic sublevels
can be clearly resolved for 87Rb Fg = 1 Fe = 1, 2 and Fg = 2 Fe = 1, 2
fluorescence excitation. Also, relatively good spectral resolution can be achieved
for 85Rb Fg = 2 Fe = 2, 3 fluorescence excitation. Some partial resolution of
transitions between magnetic sublevels is achieved for 85Rb Fg = 3 Fe = 2, 3
fluorescence excitation. The spectral resolution of individual transitions allows one to
