1. 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 ...

2. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. 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 ...

6. CODATA Recommended Values of the Fundamental Physical Constants: 2010
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 961
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Peter J Mohr, Barry Norman Taylor, David B Newell
Abstract: NIST SP 961 (Dec/2012)

7. Energy Levels and Observed Spectral Lines of Neutral and Singly Ionized Titanium, Ti I and Ti II
Series: J. Phys. & Chem. Ref. Data (JPCRD)
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 1/12/2012
Author: Edward Barry Saloman
Abstract: The energy levels and observed spectral lines of neutral and singly ionized titanium atoms have been compiled. Tables of energy levels and spectral lines are generated for each stage. Experimental g-factors and leading percentages are included when ...

8. 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 ...

9. Wavelengths, Transition Probabilities, and Energy Levels for the Spectra of Barium (Ba III through Ba LVI)
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 11/19/2010
Authors: Jean Ellen Sansonetti, John J Curry
Abstract: Energy levels, with designations and uncertainties, have been compiled for the spectra of barium (Z=56) ions from doubly-ionized to hydrogen-like. Wavelengths with classifications, intensities, and transition probabilities are also tabulated. In addi ...

10. Low-Frequency Characterization of MEMS-Based Portable Atomic Magnetometer
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 6/2/2010
Authors: Rahul R. (Rahul) 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 ...
