M. , when the atmosphere is naturally warmer. The lower atmosphere was similar to that measured by Viking, and its conditions can be attributed to dust mixed uniformly in comparatively warm air. As a bonus, mission scientists were able to use radio communications signals from Pathfinder to measure the rotation of Mars. Daily Doppler tracking and less frequent two-way ranging during communication sessions determined the position of the lander with a precision of 100 meters. The last such positional measurement was done by Viking more than 20 years ago.

We estimated the number of photons stored in our resonator by measuring the amount of laser light transmitted through one of the cavity’s mirrors. We used a highly efficient detector that could count 40 percent of all the photons that reached it. In our experiment the photon buildup continued until the rate of loss from absorption and transmission through the mirrors equaled the rate of photon emission from the barium atoms. We were able to vary the density of the stream of atoms by adjusting the temperature of the barium oven.
