Abstract

We have investigated the dependence of polarization spectroscopy signal on the pump beam intensity around the $F_g=2 \rightarrow F_e=3$ resonance transition line of $^{87}$Rb and analyzed the amplitude, linewidth, and slope of the signal for pump beam intensities up to 60 $I_s$, where $I_s$ is the saturation intensity. As the pump beam intensity increases in the range smaller than $I_s$, the amplitude, linewidth, and slope of the signal increase linearly. On the other hand, as the pump beam intensity grows in the range much larger than $I_s$, the amplitude and slope are reduced, and the linewidth became saturated. The dependence of the polarization spectroscopy signal on the pump beam intensity is mostly caused by the redistribution of the populations in the $F_g=2,m_g$ Zeeman states with the growth of $\sigma^+$ pump beam intensity, and interestingly, we observe that the change of the atom number density in the vapor cell dramatically modifies the amplitude of the signal in the range much larger than the saturation intensity $I_s$. The observed experimental results can be interpreted well by using the analytical solution for the polarization spectroscopy signal.
