Abstract

Spatial structure created by pulsed field interactions with two-level systems is considered. Superresolved pattern formation is possible by the use of extra degrees of freedom programmed in the time-domain field. In analogy with slice selection in magnetic resonance imaging, the two-level system with no decay constants is shown to be completely controllable. The effects of noise, dephasing, and inhomogeneous broadening are considered. © 1997 Optical Society of America.
