Rabi oscillations of atomic spinor wave packets in the optical double-well potentials of a far-off-resonance 1D lin-θ-lin optical lattice were observed. Extensive data were taken for a relative polarization angle θ=80°, plus additional data at = 85°. Both data sets show Rabi frequencies in excellent agreement with theory.
