|Title:||Differential Light Shift Cancellation in a B-Field Insensitive Transition of 87Rb|
|Published:||February 11, 2011|
|Abstract:||We demonstrate substantial cancellation of the differential light shift of a magnetic-field-insensitive microwave hyperfine (clock) transition in 87Rb atoms trapped in an optical lattice. Up to 95.5% of the differential light shift is cancelled while maintaining magnetic-field insensitivity. Our technique should have applications in quantum information and frequency metrology.|
