Laser Cooling and Quantum Gas

Abstract.

We have investigated the influence of narrow-line laser cooling on the loading of Ca atoms into optical dipole traps. To describe the narrow-line cooling of alkaline-earth atoms in combination with optical dipole trapping, we have developed a model that takes into account the light shifts of the cooling transition in three dimensions. The model is compared with two experimental realizations of optical dipole traps for calcium at the wavelengths 514 nm and 10.6 μm.
