A pump-probe study of the photoassociation of cold rubidium molecules.

Abstract:

The dynamics of the excited state during the photoassociation of cold molecules from cold rubidium atoms is studied in a series of pump-probe experiments. Dipole transitions similar to those of the atoms are observed in the molecular signal. While such behaviour is characteristic of the long-range molecules, the photoassociation of bound molecules is confirmed in additional experiments. The pump-probe signal observed on a 250 ps time scale did not, however, reveal wavepacket oscillations pred...
