11. Number Enhancement for Compact Laser-Cooled Atomic Samples by use of Stimulated Radiation Forces
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 6/2/2010
Authors: Elizabeth A Donley, Tara C. Liebisch, Eric Michael Blanshan, John E Kitching
Abstract: For cold samples of laser-cooled atoms to be most useful in emerging technologies such as compact atomic clocks and sensors, it is necessary to achieve small sample sizes while retaining a large number of cold atoms. We consider achieving large atom ...

12. Quasi-phasematched Second Harmonic Generation in GaAs Microdisks
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 11/15/2009
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, W Fang, Glenn Scott Solomon
Abstract: We discuss design and tuning of second-harmonic generation in GaAs microdisks. Quasi-phasematching can be achieved in the microdisk geometry without external domain inversions, but efficient nonlinear optical mixing requires that all waves be resonan ...

13. Uncooled, Millimeter-Scale Atomic Magnetometers with Femtotesla Sensitivity
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 10/26/2009
Authors: John E Kitching, Svenja A Knappe, William C. Griffith, Jan Preusser, V Gerginov, Peter D. Schwindt, Vishal Shah, Ricardo Jimenez Martinez
Abstract: We summarize recent results at NIST to develop high-performance yet highly miniaturized magnetic sensors based on atomic vapors confined in microfabricated alkali vapor cells. These sensors currently achieve sensitivities in the range of a few tens o ...

14. Ratio of the Al^u+^ and Hg^u+^ Optical Clock Frequencies to 17 Decimal Places
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 8/25/2008
Authors: Wayne M Itano, Till P Rosenband, David Hume, P.O. Schmidt, Chin W. Chou, A. Brusch, Luca Lorini, Windell Oskay, Robert Eugene Drullinger, Sarah Bickman, Tara Michele Fortier, Jason Stalnaker, Scott A Diddams, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury, David J Wineland, James C Bergquist
Abstract: Frequency standards (atomic clocks) based on narrow optical transitions in ^u27^Al^u+^ and ^u199^Hg^u+^ have been developed over the past several years at NIST. These two types of standards are both based on single ions confined in Paul traps, but di ...
