Confinement and manipulation of atoms using short laser pulses

Freegarde, T.G.M., Walz, J. and Hänsch, T.W. (1995) Confinement and manipulation of atoms using short laser pulses Optics Communications, 117, (3-4), pp. 262-267.

Record type: Article


The force resulting from a position-dependent sequence of interactions with short counter-propagating pi-pulses of laser radiation can propel atoms towards the small region where the pulses overlap. The optical trap thus formed may be combined with Doppler-cooling laser beams.
