Griffin, P. F. and Weatherill, K. J. and MacLeod, S. G. and Potvliege, R. M. and Adams, C. S. (2006) 'Spatially selective loading of an optical lattice by light-shift engineering using an auxiliary laser field.', New journal of physics., 8 (11).
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.
