Abstract

A Faraday anomalous dispersion optical filter (FADOF) and an atomic resonant absorption filter are used in tandem to demonstrate a low-frequency shift Raman measurement down to few cm1. The FADOF, with an ultralow bandwidth of 0.08  cm1 at 780 nm, serves as a bandpass filter, while the rubidium atomic cell acts as a notch filter which has a bandwidth of 0.3  cm1. A proof-of-concept study to measure a Raman signal generated from a silica optical fiber is performed, demonstrating a low-frequency measurement of both the Stokes and the anti-Stokes shift down to 3  cm1 at an equivalent signal level. These results indicate the prospect for gigahertz–terahertz low-energy Raman spectroscopy based on atomic filters.
