We recently demonstrated conservative optical lattices with subwavelength spatial structure. (PRL 120 083601 (2018)) The potential is based on the nonlinear optical response of three-level atoms in laser-dressed dark states.

Our follow-up paper to the anamalous broadening work explores the dynamics of the black-body-induced runaway broadening process. Such broadening has serious implications for many proposals to coherently use Rydberg interactions, particularly Rydberg dressing proposals.
