레이저 광압을 이용한 세슘 원자빔의 집속

Abstract

Thermal cesium atomic beam was collimated by transversely cooling of atoms, for which circularly polarized ($\sigma^+$ and $\sigma^-$ polarized) laser light was illuminated to the atomic beam from two perpendicular directions. As a result, the temperature corresponding to the transverse velocity component could be decreased from 430 mK to 60 11K. In addition, the spatial atomic distribution was observed according to the power difference of the two laser beams and the magnetic field applied, and the result was qualitatively coincided with the calculation result by the Doppler cooling theory. heory.
