1. Spectrum and Energy Levels of Five-Times Ionized Zirconium (Zr VI)
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 1/5/2016
Authors: Joseph Reader, Mark D. Lindsay
Abstract: The spectrum of five-times-ionized zirconium Zr VI was observed from 160 Å to 2000 Å with sliding spark discharges on 10.7-m normal- and grazing-incidence spectrographs. The existing analysis of this spectrum [Khan Z. A. et al. 1985 Phys. Scr. 31 83 ...

2. Fast, all-optical logic gates and transistor functionalities using a room-temperature atomic controlled Kerr gate
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 12/2/2014
Authors: Lu Deng, Edward W Hagley, Runbing Li
Abstract: We demonstrate all-optical multilogic gate operations and transistor functionalities using a Kerr phase gate method in a room-temperature Rb85 vapor. Two symmetric Mach-Zehnder interferometers are constructed in the same vapor cell in which a Ram ...

3. Extended and Revised Analysis of Singly Ionized Tin: Sn II
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 10/28/2014
Authors: K. Haris, Alexander Kramida, A. Tauheed
Abstract: The electronic structure of singly ionized tin (Sn II) is partly a one-electron and partly a three-electron system with ground configuration 5s25p. The excited configurations are of the type 5s2nℓ in the one-electron part, and 5s5p2, 5p3 and 5s ...

4. Millimeter Wave Detection via Autler-Townes Splitting in Rubidium Rydberg Atoms
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 7/17/2014
Authors: Joshua A Gordon, Christopher L Holloway, Andrew Schwarzkopf, Dave Anderson, Stephanie Miller, Nithiwadee Thaicharoen, Georg Raithel
Abstract: In this paper we demonstrate the detection of millimeter waves via Autler-Townes splitting in 85Rb Rydberg atoms. This method may provide an independent atomic-based SI-traceable method for measuring mm-wave electric fi elds, which addresses a gap in ...

5. Trapping atoms using nanoscale quantum vacuum forces
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 7/10/2014
Authors: Jacob M Taylor, Darrick E. Chang, Kanupriya Sinha, H J Kimble
Abstract: Quantum vacuum forces dictate the interaction between individual atoms and dielectric surfaces at nanoscale distances. For example, their large strengths typically overwhelm externally applied forces, which makes it challenging to controllably interf ...

6. Energy Levels And Spectral Lines Of Quadruply Ionized Iron (Fe V)
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 4/24/2014
Author: Alexander Kramida
Abstract: This compilation revises and extends the previously recommended list of energy levels of quadruply ionized iron (Fe V) and provides a comprehensive list of observed spectral lines and transition probabilities in this spectrum. The new level optimizat ...

7. Observation of a superfluid Hall effect
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 7/3/2012
Authors: Lindsay J. LeBlanc, Karina K. Jimenez Garcia, Ross A. Williams, Matthew C. Beeler, Abigail Reiko Perry, William D Phillips, Ian B Spielman
Abstract: Measurement techniques based upon the Hall effect are essential tools in condensed matter physics. Here, we report the first observation of a Hall effect in an ultracold gas of neutral atoms, revealed by measuring Bose-Einstein condensate's transpo ...

8. Demonstration of Superluminal Images
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 6/19/2012
Authors: Ryan Thomas Glasser, Ulrich Vogl, Paul D Lett
Abstract: Optical pulse propagation with group velocities larger than the speed of light in vacuum, c, or negative, have been demonstrated theoretically and experimentally in a variety of systems [1‹5]. The anomalous dispersion required for generating ,fastŠ l ...

9. Stimulated Generation of Superluminal Light Pulses via Four-wave Mixing
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 4/26/2012
Authors: Ryan Thomas Glasser, Ulrich Vogl, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We report on the four-wave mixing of superluminal pulses, in which both the injected and generated pulses involved in the process propagate with negative group velocities. Generated pulses with negative group velocities of up to vg = −c/880 ar ...
