Spatially selective loading of an optical lattice by light-shift engineering using an auxiliary laser field.

Abstract

I had the idea a long time ago that shifting the excited state energy level using an additional laser could be a useful tool in cold atoms experiments. In this paper we demonstrated experimentally the application of this idea to loading specific sites in a CO2 laser lattice.
