Abstract

Complex amplified pulses, including al ps, 100 µJ tanh-swept sech pulse for adiabatic inversion, are generated experimentally. STRUT detection verifies the modulation and follows the dynamics induced by such pulses in Rb vapor. Applications to production of spin-polarized gases for medical imaging are discussed.
