Abstract
We present a hybrid atomic sensor that realizes radio-frequency electric field detection with intrinsic field enhancement and polarization selectivity for robust high-sensitivity field measurement. The sensor incorporates a passive resonator element integrated with an atomic vapor cell that provides enhancement and polarization selectivity of incident radio-frequency fields. The enhanced intra-cavity radio-frequency field is measured by atoms using a quantum-optical readout of AC level shifts of field-sensitive atomic Rydberg states. In our demonstration, we employ a split field-enhancement resonator embedded in a rubidium vapor cell to enhance and detect C-band...
