Detection and imaging of He2 molecules in superfluid helium.


We present data that show a cycling transition can be used to detect and image metastable He2 triplet molecules in superfluid helium. We demonstrate that limitations on the cycling efficiency due to the vibrational structure of the molecule can be mitigated by the use of repumping lasers. Images of the molecules obtained using the method are also shown… (More)
