Abstract

The saturated-absorption resonances on the 3P0,1,2-3D1,2,3 transitions of magnesium atoms in a hollow-cathode discharge cell are studied. The line width (FWHM) for the observed saturated-absorption resonance on the 33P0 → 33D1 transition turns out to be ≈220 MHz. Experiments are performed using a system based on a 766-nm diode laser with amplification and frequency doubling in a nonlinear BiBO crystal. The results obtained are of interest for sub-Doppler cooling on the 33P2 → 33D3 transition.
