We report the efficient and fast ( ∼ 2Hz) preparation of randomly loaded 1D chains of individual 87 Rb atoms and of dense atomic clouds trapped in optical tweezers using a new experimental platform. This platform is designed for the study of both structured and disordered atomic systems in free space. It is composed of two high-resolution optical systems perpendicular to each other, enhancing observation and manipulation capabil-ities. The setup includes a dynamically controllable telescope…

Background: Optical microtraps at the focus of high numerical aperture (high-NA) imaging systems enable efficient collection, trapping, detection and manipulation of individual neutral atoms for

Storage and Release of Subradiant Excitations in a Dense Atomic Cloud

Researchers have created subradiant states---in which collective effects prevent excited atoms from decaying---in a dense atomic cloud.

Engineering analog quantum chemistry Hamiltonians using cold atoms in optical lattices

Using quantum systems to efficiently solve quantum chemistry problems is one of the long-sought applications of near-future quantum technologies. In a recent work, ultra-cold fermionic atoms have

Λ-enhanced grey molasses on the D2 transition of Rubidium-87 atoms

It is shown that, for 87Rb, thanks to the large hyperfine structure separations the use of this transition is not strictly necessary and that “quasi-dark state” cooling is efficient also on the D2 line, 5S1/2 → 5P3/2.

Three-body decay of a rubidium Bose–Einstein condensate

Abstract.We have measured the three-body decay of a Bose–Einstein condensate of rubidium (87Rb) atoms prepared in the doubly polarized ground state F=mF=2. Our data are taken for a peak atomic

\Lambda-enhanced Sub-Doppler Cooling of Lithium Atoms in D1 Gray Molasses

Following the bichromatic sub-Doppler cooling scheme on the D1-line of 40K recently demonstrated in (Fernandes et al. 2012), we introduce a similar technique for 7Li atoms and obtain temperatures of

All-optical Bose-Einstein condensation using a compressible crossed dipole trap

We describe an all-optical method of making a {sup 87}Rb Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). Atoms are first cooled in an optical lattice and loaded into a crossed dipole trap with 1.06 {mu}m light. Then

Subradiance in a Large Cloud of Cold Atoms.

This work reports the experimental observation of subradiance in an extended and dilute cold-atom sample containing a large number of particles, and detects a very slow decay, with time constants as long as 100 times the natural lifetime of the excited state of individual atoms.

Maltese cross coupling to individual cold atoms in free space.

The fluorescence signals indicate both sub-Poissonian atom number statistics and photon anti-bunching, showing suitability for cold atom quantum optics.

Evaporative cooling of a small number of atoms in a single-beam microscopic dipole trap

We demonstrate experimentally the evaporative cooling of a few hundred rubidium-87 atoms in a single-beam microscopic dipole trap. Starting with 800 atoms at a temperature of 125 μK, we produce an

Interferometric determination of the s and d-wave scattering amplitudes in 87Rb.

An interference method is demonstrated to determine the low-energy elastic scattering amplitudes of a quantum gas by extracting the corresponding phase shifts from the interference between s- and d- partial waves in the differential scattering pattern.
