  • Highly sensitive Faraday rotation spectroscopy is used to measure the fluctuating magnetization noise of noninteracting rubidium atoms under resonant and nonresonant optical probing conditions. The spin-noise frequency spectra, in conjunction with the probe light detuning with respect to the D{sub 2} transition, reveal clear signatures of coherent coupling of the participating electronic levels. The results are explained by extended Bloch equations, including homogeneous and inhomogeneous broadening mechanisms. Our measurements further indicate that spin noise originating from excited states is governed at high intensities by collective effects.
  • We calculate the frequency-dispersed nonlinear transmission signal of a phase-shaped visible pulse to fourth order in the field. Two phase profiles, a phase-step and phase-pulse, are considered. Two dimensional signals obtained by varying the detected frequency and phase parameters are presented for a three electronic band model system. We demonstrate how two-photon and stimulated Raman resonances can be manipulated by the phase profile and sign, and selected quantum pathways can be suppressed.
  • A theoretical investigation is presented that uses a strong two-color laser field composed of a linearly chirped fundamental (900 nm) and its subharmonic (1800-nm) laser pulses to control coherently the broadband isolated attosecond pulses in high-order harmonic generations. After the subharmonic field is added, the intrinsic chirp of harmonic emission can be reduced significantly, and consequently, the temporal synchronization of harmonic emission with different photon energies at the level of the single-atom response can be realized. In addition, the scheme is robust against the carrier envelope phase variation to produce a twin pulse of stable sub-100-as duration, and the relativemore » intensity of the twin pulses can be changed just by adjusting the relative time delay of the two driving pulses, which is of benefit in general pump-probe experiments.« less
  • We study the prospects of controlling transmission of broadband and bichromatic laser pulses through turbid samples. The ability to focus transmitted broadband light is limited via both the scattering properties of the medium and the technical characteristics of the experimental setup. There are two time scales given by pulse stretching in the near- and far-field regions which define the maximum bandwidth of a pulse amenable to focusing. In the geometric-optics regime of wave propagation in the medium, a single setup can be optimal for focusing light at frequencies {omega} and n{omega} simultaneously, providing the basis for the 1+n coherent quantummore » control. Beyond the regime of geometric optics, we discuss a simple solution for the shaping, which provides the figure of merit for one's ability to simultaneously focus several transmission modes.« less
