Abstract

We investigated the Autler-Townes (AT) splitting produced by microwave (mw) transitions between atomic Rydberg states explored by optical spectroscopy from the ground electronic state. The laser-atom Hamiltonian describing the double irradiation of such a multilevel system is analysed on the basis of the Morris-Shore transformation. The application of this transformation to the mw-dressed atomic system allows the identification of bright, dark, and spectator states associated with different configurations of atomic states and mw polarisations. We derived synthetic spectra that show the main features of Rydberg spectroscopy. Complex AT spectra are obtained in a regime of strong mw dressing, where a hybridisation of the Rydberg fine structure states is produced by the driving.
