the dipole blockade

Autler-Townes Spectroscopy

This section on blockade results highlights recent results in which blockade effectiveness was measured for a range of nD5/2 quantum states using the counting statistics of detected Rydberg atoms. Counting statistics measurement are particularly useful for measuring blockade effectiveness in small atomic samples and for a variety of different experimental parameters such as excitation Rabi frequencies, detuning, and quantum state.
