    Abstract

    The authors have initiated a new class of coherent transient experiments with Doppler-broadened atoms confined in a vapor cell following proposals in recently published work. A spatially modulated coherence is created between magnetic sublevels of the F = 3 ground state of 85Rb by a 'standing wave' pulse. This pulse consists of two opposite circularly polarized traveling waves with wave vectors K1 and K2 at a small angle. The coherence grating is probed by the application of a 'readout' pulse along K2. The resulting coherent emission along K1 is detected by a heterodyne technique.
