Title: Two strongly contrasting Λ-systems in the D{sub 1} line of {sup 87}Rb in a transverse magnetic field

Abstract

Four different types of spectroscopic cells that cover all possible existing versions of sealed-off cells (containing alkali atomic vapor) characterized by drastically different relaxation rates γ{sub rel} are used to study the electromagnetically induced transparency spectra of two Λ-systems in the D{sub 1} line of {sup 87}Rb in the presence of transverse magnetic field. Two cw narrowband diode-lasers are used to form the coupling laser radiation (with a fixed frequency) and the probe radiation with a tunable frequency. Two strongly contrasting Λ-systems are found: the first shows resonances that are transformed from dark resonances to bright resonances in all cases apart from nanocells, whereas the second shows four dark resonances in all four different types of cell. The theoretical simulations are in good agreement with the experimental results.

  • The effects on magnetic-field-line structure of adding various static transverse magnetic fields to a Solov'ev-equilibrium field-reversed configuration are examined. It is shown that adding fields that are antisymmetric about the axial midplane maintains the closed field-line structure, while adding fields with planar or helical symmetry opens the field structure. Antisymmetric modes also introduce pronounced shear. (c) 2000 American Institute of Physics.
  • Purpose: The main focus of this work is to continue investigations into the Monte Carlo predicted skin doses seen in MRI-guided radiotherapy. In particular, the authors aim to characterize the 70 {mu}m skin doses over a larger range of magnetic field strength and x-ray field size than in the current literature. The effect of surface orientation on both the entry and exit sides is also studied. Finally, the use of exit bolus is also investigated for minimizing the negative effects of the electron return effect (ERE) on the exit skin dose. Methods: High resolution GEANT4 Monte Carlo simulations of amore » water phantom exposed to a 6 MV x-ray beam (Varian 2100C) have been performed. Transverse magnetic fields of strengths between 0 and 3 T have been applied to a 30x30x20 cm{sup 3} phantom. This phantom is also altered to have variable entry and exit surfaces with respect to the beam central axis and they range from -75 deg. to +75 deg. The exit bolus simulated is a 1 cm thick (water equivalent) slab located on the beam exit side. Results: On the entry side, significant skin doses at the beam central axis are reported for large positive surface angles and strong magnetic fields. However, over the entry surface angle range of -30 deg. to -60 deg., the entry skin dose is comparable to or less than the zero magnetic field skin dose, regardless of magnetic field strength and field size. On the exit side, moderate to high central axis skin dose increases are expected except at large positive surface angles. For exit bolus of 1 cm thickness, the central axis exit skin dose becomes an almost consistent value regardless of magnetic field strength or exit surface angle. This is due to the almost complete absorption of the ERE electrons by the bolus. Conclusions: There is an ideal entry angle range of -30 deg. to -60 deg. where entry skin dose is comparable to or less than the zero magnetic field skin dose. Other than this, the entry skin dose increases are significant, especially at higher magnetic fields. On the exit side there is mostly moderate to high skin dose increases for 0.2-3 T with the only exception being large positive angles. Exit bolus of 1 cm thickness will have a significant impact on lowering such exit skin dose increases that occur as a result of the ERE.« less
  • In some plasma confinement systems (e.g., field-reversed configurations and levitated dipoles) the confinement is provided by a closed-field-line poloidal magnetic field. We consider the influence of the magnetic field perturbations on the structure of the magnetic field in such systems and find that the effect of perturbations is quite different from that in the systems with a substantial toroidal field. In particular, even infinitesimal perturbations can, in principle, lead to large radial excursions of the field lines in FRCs and levitated dipoles. Under such circumstances, particle drifts and particle collisions may give rise to significant neoclassical transport. Introduction of amore » weak regular toroidal magnetic field reduces radial excursions of the field lines and neoclassical transport.« less
  • For a number of high{minus}T{sub c} cuprates it has been observed that the resistive transition reveals an upper critical field with increasingly negative gradient on cooling. However, the {lambda} point of the specific heat scarcely shifts with applied magnetic field. Either phenomenon is highly unusual in itself, but also appears to be irreconcilable with one another under the BCS framework. This Letter offers an explanation of the observed phenomena on the basis of the bipolaron theory. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • The paths traced out by charged particles in a cusped magnetic field in a strong transverse electrostatic field have been studied analytically and numerically. The calculation model is a single-gap electromagnetic system. The electric field in the plasma substantially improves the ion confinement in the system. The effect is most marked in axial apertures.
