ABSTRACT Optical manipulation of spin coherence in rubidium atoms is studied. The effect of off-resonant and circularly polarized light on optically induced magnetization is investigated. The change in precession frequency caused by the light-shift effect is verified. Absorption-free phase control of spin precession and pure spin rotation about an arbitrary axis are demonstrated. A theory of precession frequency shift that includes the effect of absorption is considered by using the density matrix and the experimental results are in agreement with the predictions of the theory. Thus, we show that it is possible to carry out off-resonant control of spin coherence and all-optical manipulation of spins.

    ABSTRACT: By using the optical add‐drop filter which is formed by a microring resonator.After a dark soliton pulse is fed into an input port of the add‐drop filter, the orthogonal soliton pair (dark and bright solitons) can be formed within the system and detected simultaneously at the output ports. Under the resonant condition, the conversion of dark and bright solitons corresponding to the left‐hand and right hand soliton orientations can be generated and seen. Whenever a soliton(photon) is absorbed by an object, an angular momentum of either +h or −h is imparted to the object, in which two possible soliton states known as soliton spins are exhibited and confirmed by the helical phase presentation. In application, the train of orthogonal solitons, that is, many solitons (photons) with slightly different wavelengths can be generated by using the modified add‐drop filter, which is available for many soliton spin investigations. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Under the resonant condition, the conversion of dark and bright solitons corresponding to the left-hand and right-hand soliton orientations can be generated and seen. Whenever a soliton (photon) is absorbed by an object, an angular momentum of either +ℏ or -ℏ is imparted to the object, in which two possible soliton states known as soliton spins are exhibited and confirmed by the helical phase presentation. In application, the train of orthogonal solitons, i.e. many solitons (photons) with slightly different wavelengths can be generated by using the modified add-drop filter, which is available for many soliton spins and long distance spin transport investigations.
