Title: Four-level atom interferometer with trichromatic laser fields

Abstract

A four-level atom interferometer comprised of three excited states and one ground state with trichromatic fields coupled between them is investigated using Zeeman sublevels of {sup 3}P{sub 1} and {sup 1}S{sub 0} states of a calcium atom. A theoretical description of the interaction of four-level atoms with trichromatic laser fields is presented and compared with the experimental results of the interference fringes which are generated by the three excited states.
