11. Highly efficient inelastic four-wave mixing using dual induced transparency and coherently prepared states
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 3/13/2006
Authors: Lu Deng, M. G. Payne
Abstract: We investigate a life time broadened and coherently prepared five-state system for multi-wave mixing processes. We show that very efficient wave mixing occurs, producing an unconventional mixing wave that has the characteristics of both conventi ...

12. Hyperfine structure constants for singly-ionized manganese (Mn II) using Fourier Transform Spectroscopy
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 6/9/2016
Authors: Keeley I. Townley-Smith, Gillian Nave, J C Pickering, Richard J Blackwell-Whitehead
Abstract: We expand on the comprehensive study of hyperfi ne structure (HFS) in Mn II conducted by Holt et al. (1999) by verifying hyper fine magnetic dipole constants (A) for 20 levels previously measured by Holt et al. (1999) and deriving A constants for ...

13. Low-Frequency Characterization of MEMS-Based Portable Atomic Magnetometer
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 6/2/2010
Authors: Rahul R. Mhaskar, Svenja A Knappe, John E Kitching
Abstract: Atomic magnetometers based on absorption or polarization rotation of light in an alkali vapor have recently demonstrated sensitivities rivaling those of superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs). Miniaturization of such devices containing ...

14. 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 ...

15. New Inelastic Four-Wave Mixing Process Involving Ultra-Slow Propagation Enhancement and Multiple Simultaneous Interference-Based Suppressions
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 9/1/2004
Authors: Lu Deng, M Payne, W R Garrett
Abstract: We investigate the role of multi-photon destructive interference in a coherently prepared medium in the context of ultra-slow propagation enhanced wave mixing process. We show that a new type of mixing wave with characteristics of both the conve ...

16. 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 M. (Eric) 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 ...

17. 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 ...

18. Observation of the red-blue detuning asymmetry in matter-wave superradiance
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 11/23/2010
Authors: Lu Deng, Edward W Hagley, Qiang Cao, Xiaorui Wang, Xinyu Luo, Ruquan Wang, Fan Yang, Xiaoji Zhou, Xuzong Chen, M. G. Payne, Mingsheng Zhan
Abstract: We show the first experimental observations of matter-wave superradiance using blue-detuned light, and demonstrate a pump-laser detuning asymmetry in the collective atomic recoil motion. In contrast to all previous theoretical treatments, which p ...

19. Phases of a 2D Bose Gas in an Optical Lattice
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 9/9/2010
Authors: Karina K. Jimenez Garcia, Yu-Ju Lin, James V Porto, Ian B Spielman
Abstract: Ultra-cold atoms in optical lattices realize essential models in condensed matter physics. Like with most experiments with ultra-cold atoms, our Rubidium-87 Bose Einstein condensate is confined in a harmonic trapping potential that persists even ...

20. Progress at NIST in measuring the D-lines of Li isotopes using an optical frequency comb
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 12/20/2010
Authors: Clayton Simien, Samuel Middleton Brewer, Joseph N Tan, John D Gillaspy, Craig J Sansonetti
Abstract: Precise spectroscopic experiments with light atoms can provide information about nuclear properties that are very difficult to obtain in electron scattering experiments. For example, relative nuclear radii of low-Z isotopes can be determined accurat ...
