Congratulations to Dan Stack who recently defended his PhD thesis "Optical Forces from Periodic Adiabatic Rapid Passage Sequences in Metastable Helium".
All three main experiments presented at the 2012 DAMOP meeting in Garden Grove, California. You can find links to the posters presented below:
-Velocity Dependence of the Optical Force Produced by Adiabatic Rapid Passage
-Toward Laser Cooling without Spontaneous Emission
-Polarization Effects in STIRAP Between Triplet He States
-STIRAP Production of Rydberg Helium: Effects of Thermal Radiation and Level Multiplicity
