Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


We demonstrate adiabatic rapid passage in a single excitonic system using chirped optical pulses. In the adiabatic regime, population is fully inverted regardless of detuning and excitation power in contrast to Rabi oscillations.
