Abstract

By intersecting four linearly polarized laser beams, we have produced a three-dimensional optical lattice for cesium atoms. In the interference pattern created by the beams there will be positions where the polarization is purely circular. At such points, optical pumping will put atoms in a state that has a potential minimum at the same location, due to the light shift. Thus, these points will constitute the lattice sites in a lattice of optical potential wells.
