Dark-state imaging for two-dimensional mapping of a magnetic field


, : Dark-state imaging for two-dimensional mapping of a magnetic field. Optics Letters 28(13): 1153-1155

By imaging the dark states that are due to coherent population trapping in Na atomic vapor, we have succeeded in depicting a spatially inhomogeneous magnetic field. Highly resolved dark lines represent cross sections of the surfaces of constant magnetic fields, and they agree well with the predicted hyperfine Zeeman splitting and the two-photon selection rules of the Na atom. Mapping was made two dimensionally in real time, but extension to three dimensions is straightforward. Furthermore, unlike the previous techniques based on optical pumping, this method can be used for any magnetic-field directions.

The antimicrobial activity of 8 selenoorganic compounds (3-benzisoselenazoles, 1-benzisoselenazolone oxide and 4-disaryl diselenides) was investigated. It was found that selenoorganic compounds from benzisoselenazolone group suppress growth of som...

The feeding behaviour of Peregrinus maidis (Ashm.) was looked at in relation to the cyanide and phenolic compounds found in sorghum. Tests were carried out using both plant material and artificial media. HCN was found to be deterrent in long-term...
