Abstract

Applying a magnetic field as a method for tuning the frequency of Autler-Townes splitting for Rydberg electrometry has recently been demonstrated. In this Letter, we provide a theoretical understanding of Rydberg electromechanically-induced-transparency signals of alkali metal atoms in the presence of a large magnetic field, as well as demonstrate some advantages of this technique over traditional Autler-Townes-based electrometry. We show that a strong magnetic field provides a well-defined quantization axis regardless of the optical field polarizations; we demonstrate that by separating the mJ levels of the Rydberg state, we can perform an Autler-Townes splitting with a single participating dipole moment, and we demonstrate recovery of signal strength by populating a single mJ level using circularly polarized light.
