We present examples of ring structures that arise in a
87Rb spinor condensate through the application of Raman laser pulses that couple the internal spin states of the F = 2 ground state manifold. The appearance of fringes within the context of the population transfer dynamics is discussed, and several pulse protocol options are compared. PACS numbers 37.10.Vz 03.75.Mn 03.75.Lm 37.25.+k
