Abstract

We demonstrate a movable, Rydberg atom-based radio frequency (RF) electric (E) field probe. The technique is based on electromagnetically induced transparency and Autler–Townes splitting. Two fibers attached to a 10 mm cubic Cs133 vapor cell are used to couple counter-propagating probe and control lasers through the cell. This all-dielectric fiber-coupled sensor can be moved from the optics table to locations more suitable for RF (gigahertz to sub-terahertz) E-field measurements and calibrations.
