We demonstrate simultaneous deceleration and trapping of a cold atomic and molecular mixture. This is the first step towards studies of cold atom-molecule collisions at low temperatures as well as application of sympathetic cooling. Both atoms and molecules are cooled in a supersonic expansion and are loaded into a moving magnetic trap that brings them to rest via the Zeeman interaction from an initial velocity of 375  m/s. We use a beam seeded with molecular oxygen, and entrain it with lithium…

Simultaneous Zeeman deceleration of polyatomic free radical with lithium atoms
Chemistry in the ultracold regime enables fully quantum-controlled interactions between atoms and molecules, leading to the discovery of the hidden mechanisms in chemical reactions which are usually
Long-term trapping of Stark-decelerated molecules
Trapped cold molecules represent attractive systems for precision-spectroscopic studies and for investigations of cold collisions and chemical reactions. However, achieving their confinement for
Collisions between cold molecules in a superconducting magnetic trap
Collisions between cold molecules are essential for studying fundamental aspects of quantum chemistry, and may enable the formation of quantum degenerate molecular matter by evaporative cooling.
Deceleration and Trapping of SrF Molecules.
TLDR
This work significantly extends the species of neutral molecules of which slow beams can be created for collision studies, precision measurement, and trapping experiments and demonstrates a factor 3 increase in the molecular mass that has been Stark decelerated and trapped.
Collisions between ultracold atoms and cold molecules in a dual electrostatic-magnetic trap
Measurements of interactions between cold molecules and ultracold atoms can allow for a detailed understanding of fundamental collision processes. These measurements can be done using various
Microwave trap for atoms and molecules
We demonstrate a trap that confines polarizable particles around the antinode of a standing-wave microwave field. The trap relies only on the polarizability of the particles far from any resonances,
Multistage Zeeman deceleration of atomic and molecular oxygen
Multistage Zeeman deceleration is a technique used to reduce the velocity of neutral molecules with a magnetic dipole moment. Here we present a Zeeman decelerator that consists of 100 solenoids and
Enhancing radical molecular beams by skimmer cooling.
TLDR
A new strategy to address this challenge: when a skimmer is cooled to a temperature below the freezing point of the carrier gas, skimmer clogging can be effectively suppressed and a gain of 30 in density over the best commercial devices is identified.
Molecular collisions: From near-cold to ultra-cold
In the past two decades, the revolutionary technologies of creating cold and ultracold molecules have provided cutting-edge experiments for studying the fundamental phenomena of collision physics. To
Zeeman-Sisyphus Deceleration of Molecular Beams.
TLDR
A robust, continuous molecular decelerator that employs high magnetic fields and few optical pumping steps that can in principle be applied to nearly any paramagnetic atomic or molecular species, opening a general path to trapping of complex molecules.
