Generation of amplified shaped pulses for highly adiabatic excitation

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Complex amplified pulses, including a 1 ps, 100 μJ tanh-swept sech pulse for adiabatic inversion, are generated experimentally. STRUT detection verifies the modulation and follows the dynamics induced by such pulses in Rb vapor. Applications to production of spin-polarized gases for medical imaging are discussed.
