Abstract

The spatial localization of populations in internal states for three-level -atoms and four-level atoms in the N-configuration in the field of spherical light waves is considered. It is shown that the widths of spatial distributions for atoms in certain internal states as they interact with the field of standing waves amount to only several tens of nanometers.
