We describe the so-called -Zeeman method to investigate individual hyperfine transitions between
Zeeman sublevels of atoms in an external magnetic field of 0.1 mT­0.25 T. Atoms are confined in
a nanocell with thickness L= , where is the resonant wavelength 794 or 780 nm for D1 or D2
line, respectively, of Rb . Narrow resonances in the transmission spectrum of the nanocell are split
into several components in a magnetic field; their frequency positions and transition probabilities
depend on the B field. Possible applications are described, such as magnetometers with nanometric
