Abstract

In this work the authors cool and trap cesium in a 1D lin ⊥ lin optical lattice, formed by light that is detuned 25 linewidths below the 62S 1/2 (F = 4) → 62P3/2(F = 5) transition at 852 nm. They then adiabatically cool the atoms by decreasing the intensity of the lattice laser beams, and thus the potential depth, over a few 100 μs. The atomic momentum distribution is measured by a standard time-of-flight technique.
