Enhanced Loading of a Lithium 7 Magneto Optical Trap using Transverse Cooling and Frequency Spread Light Fabio Mibielli Peixoto 2002 Using a frequency spread light and a zigzag beam configuration we have transversely cooled and compressed an atomic beam of 7Li in two dimensions (2D). The loading rate of the Magneto-Optical Trap (MOT) increased by a factor of 10 capturing 2× 109 atoms. We have studied the loading rate dependence on the 2D beam intensity and on the number of reflections. A… CONTINUE READING
