We use a method based on optical coherent transients to study the vibrational coherence lifetimes of atoms trapped in the potential wells of a near-resonant optical lattice in the oscillating regime. The dependence of the positions and widths of the vibrational Raman resonances of the coherent transient spectra on the intensity, detuning, and geometry of the lattice beams is investigated and the results are compared with theoretical predictions. It is shown that the principal source of broadening of the vibrational Raman resonances is the anharmonicity of the light-shift potential wells. We also perform time-resolved measurements of the vibrational excitation of atoms equilibrating in an optical lattice.
