Buffer gas cooling and trapping of atoms with small effective magnetic moments

Abstract

– We have extended buffer gas cooling to trap atoms with small effective magnetic moments μeff . For μeff ≥ 3μB, 10 atoms were buffer gas cooled, trapped, and thermally isolated in ultra high vacuum with roughly unit efficiency. For μeff < 3μB, the fraction of atoms remaining after full thermal isolation was limited by two processes: wind from the rapid… (More)
