The dependence of multipole moments and polarizabilities on external fields appears in many applications including biomolecular molecular mechanics, optical non-linearity, nanomaterial calculations, and the perturbation of spectroscopic signatures in atomic clocks. Over a wide range of distances, distributed multipole and polarizability potentials can be(More)
We demonstrate coherent two-photon population transfer to Rydberg states of barium atoms using a combination of a pulsed dye laser and a chirped-pulse millimeter-wave spectrometer. Numerical calculations, using a density matrix formalism, reproduce our experimental results and explain the factors responsible for the observed fractional population(More)
Guided by ab initio calculations, Fourier transform microwave spectra in the 6-21 GHz region are obtained for seven isotopomers of the complex formed between 1-chloro-1-fluoroethylene and acetylene. These include the four possible combinations of (35)Cl- and (37)Cl-containing CH(2)CClF with the most abundant acetylene isotopic modification, HCCH, and its(More)
An apparatus that utilizes buffer gas cooling to produce slow atomic (Ba, Ca) and molecular (BaF, CaF) beams is constructed. In-cell temperatures of 20 0.25K are achieved with chamber cooldown times of under two hours. Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) spectra of BaF and CaF confirmed thermalization of the molecular beam to the temperature of the buffer gas(More)
