This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Sensitivity Improvement of Spin-Exchange Relaxation Free Atomic Magnetometers by Hybrid Optical Pumping of Potassium and Rubidium ' An optically pumped atomic magnetometer using a hybrid cell of potassium and rubidium atoms was demonstrated to yield high sensitivity to magnetic fields. We operated the magnetometer with the four possible combinations of optically pumped and optically probed atoms and found that the combination of optically pumped potassium and optically probed rubidium showed the highest sensitivity among the four combinations because the rubidium atoms were denser than those of potassium. Furthermore, we investigated the dependence of the sensitivity on the power densities of the pump and probe beams and the wavelength of the probe beam. The magnetometer using the hybrid cell required higher pump-beam power and had narrower magnetic linewidth than those of the single alkali-metal cell. However, the magnetic linewidth was larger than the theoretical value, ignoring the spin relaxation caused by the spin-exchange collisions. By adjusting the laser conditions, the highest sensitivity approached 30 fTrms/Hz1/2.
