Altering excitation dynamics in optically dense media using shaped ultrafast laser pulses
Shaped pulses are routinely used in various applications to alter the excitation dynamics of atoms and molecules. In this context, the interaction between intense, shaped ultrafast laser pulses and optically dense samples of Rb vapor was investigated. Excited state Rb is interesting in its own right, as it is a key reagent in the preparation of the spin-polarized noble gases that are used in magnetic resonance imaging lung studies.
