Experimental and theoretical progress has been made in the areas of experimental observation of the Optical Stern-Gerlach Effect OSGE, resonant two-photon ionization of neutral hydrogen, and a theoretical study of pi-pulse cooling. In the OSGE studies, we have improved our spatial resolution, the spatial beam profile monitor, magnetic substate selection, the size of the interaction region, the signal-to-noise ration, and our computer codes for acquiring and analyzing the data. In the resonant two-photon ionization of neutral hydrogen we have successfully produced a neutral hydrogen beam with a density of 10 to the 12th powercc and are progressing on the development on the visible ultraviolet source.
