Manipulation of Atoms by Laser Pulse Trains
In the first part of this dissertation, we consider decelerating and cooling an ensemble of multilevel atoms and molecules with a coherent train of ultrashort laser pulses. To mitigate population trapping that would prevent ...
Manipulating atoms and molecules with frequency combs
This thesis discusses decelerating atomic beams using pulse trains, and studies the possibility of cooling atoms or molecules using frequency combs. Using frequency combs in laser cooling of multilevel systems may eliminate ...
