All-optical nanotraps for atoms atop flat metamaterial lenses: a theoretical study.

Abstract

We propose a novel setup for optically trapping neutral atoms based upon the focusing properties of metamaterials. The optical trap is created at the focal point of an inverted-opal crystal when the latter is illuminated by a localized light source. The trap is located away from the surface of the inverted-opal lens, rendering the Casimir-Polder attraction… (More)
