Our experiment has yet been described in a Phys. Rev. Letter.1 — The light to be analyzed excites the optical resonance of the vapor of a metal. The intensity of the light re-emitted by the vapor, proportional to the incident intensity, is measured at right angle to the exciting beam by a photomultiplier. The scattering frequency is shifted by applying a magnetic field and by observing one σ component (through a circular analyzer). The variation of intensity of re-emitted light as a function of the field gives the profile of the exciting light.
