|Rydberg atoms were trapped with 90% efficiency in a pondeomotive optical lattice, and the trapping time has been mesured. For detailed results, see Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, 263001 (2011). A brief news report has been published by the University of Michigan News Service.
Figure: A: Rydberg atoms prepared at the peaks of an optical lattice are mostly un-trapped, since they are able to move over the lattice wells. B: Using a lattice inversion technique, Rydberg atoms can be prepared in the lattice wells, where they are efficiently confined and trapped. (Credit: S. E. Anderson) -->
