    • Non-Degenerate Four-Wave Mixing through Rydberg States in a MOT 

      Day, Jason; Brekke, Erik; Walker, Thad G. (2007-07-02)
      In this work, we use a three-photon near-resonant process in a laser-cooled Rb vapor to achieve phase-matched four-wave mixing using an intermediate Rydberg state. Rydberg atoms in the 36D5/2 state are efficiently produced ...
    • Physics Challenges for Spin-Exchange Optical Pumping of He-3 

      Walker, Thad G. (2009-05-28)
      Presentation given at the "Physics and Applications of Polarized Noble Gases" workshop at the University of Virginia, May 19, 2009.
    • A Portable SERF Magnetometer for Biomagnetic Measurements 

      Wyllie, Robert (2009-09-10)
      Recent developments on the UW SERF magnetometer.
    • A Portable Ultrasensitive SERF Atomic Magnetometer for Biomagnetic Measurements 

      Proite, Nicholas; Cook, Peter; Li, Zhimin; Wakai, Ronald T.; Walker, Thad G.; Wyllie, Robert (2009-09-10)
      We present a portable Rb cell atomic magnetometer suited for biomagnetic measurements. Working in the spin-exchange relaxation free regime, we demonstrate an initial white noise floor of 60 fT$/\sqrt {Hz} $. We show an ...
    • A Portable Ultrasensitive SERF Atomic Magnetometer for Biomagnetic Measurements 

      Wyllie, Robert; Li, Zhimin; Cook, Peter; Wakai, Ronald T.; Walker, Thad G. (2007-07-02)
      We present a portable Rb cell atomic magnetometer suited for biomagnetic measurements. Working in the spin-exchange relaxation free regime, we demonstrate an initial white noise floor of 60 fT/sqrt {Hz}. We show an adult ...
    • RayTrace 

      Walker, Thad G. (1998-03-13)
      This applet traces paraxial light rays through a user-specified system of up to 12 ideal thin lenses and apertures, allowing many simple optical instruments to be modelled. Three examples are given: coupling of light from ...
    • Six Lines to Tell a Story 

      Wood, Michael (2018-04-27)
      In this talk, I will highlight a recently completed investigation into a challenge brought against our earlier work on vanadium. The discrepancy between six transition probabilities and its resolution touches on several ...
    • Small Angle X-ray Scattering from Protein Solutions 

      Rothwell, William S. (1954-01-14)
    • Spectroscopic study of the 7p J=1/2 and 7p J=3/2 states in neutral cesium-133 

      Herd, Maria-Teresa (2018-04-27)
      I will start with a few observations of connections between spectroscopy and other (seemingly unrelated) research topics, then focus on Doppler free spectroscopy on the 7p J=1/2 and 7p J=3/2 states in neutral cesium-133. ...
    • Transition Probabilities for Neutral Cerium from Boltzmann Analysis of Fourier Transform Spectra 

      Nitz, David (2018-04-27)
      Poster presentation on Cerium transition probabilities
    • Ultrasensitive Atomic Magnetometers 

      Wyllie, Robert; Wakai, Ronald T.; Walker, Thad G. (2009-09-10)
      We have developed a novel, small-volume portable single-channel atomic biomagnetometer and have used it to detect adult MCG signals. The cryogenic-free magnetometer has sufficiently high sensitivity (20 fT/rt(Hz)) that ...
    • UW Laboratory Astrophysics 

      DenHartog, Elizabeth (2018-04-27)
      In this talk I will describe the laboratory astrophysics program of the Jim Lawler group at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, focusing on the laboratory techniques and instruments used for the measurement of transition ...
