Abstract

We performed an experiment to investigate modulation transfer spectroscopy in two-photon transition of Na2 using a CW dye laser. Comparing with UV fluorescence detection, the signals obtained by modulation transfer spectroscopy have a very high S/N without the Doppler background problem and its line shape is in agreement with theoretical calculations.
