Efficient cooling and trapping of strontium atoms

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We report the capture of cold strontium atoms in a magneto-optical trap (MOT) at a rate of 4×1010 atoms/s. The MOT is loaded from an atomic beam decelerated by a Zeeman slower operating with a focused laser beam. The 461-nm laser, used for both cooling and trapping, was generated by sum-frequency mixing in a KTP crystal with diode lasers at 813 nm and a Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm. As much as 115 mW of blue light was obtained.
