Doppler-free Laser Spectroscopy 

written by Laboratory Physicist Dean Hudek

Instructional material presented at W34 at the Beyond the First Year Laboratory conference and part of W36 "Advanced & Intermediate Laboratories" at the 2012 AAPT summer meeting.

A laboratory manual, a complete list of equipment needed, and experimental tips are included.

The main goals for the experiments are:
• To measure hyperfine splitting of atomic energy levels in 87Rb.
• To become familiar with optical techniques
• To become familiar with Michelson interferometry and measurement calibration
