Abstract

We have performed laser cooling of a Rb atomic beam at high laser intensities using two different laser configurations: a transverse lin 1 lin configuration and magnetically induced laser cooling (6’-MII,C1). The resulting velocity distribution is determined from the spatial distribution of the atoms as measured by fluorescence detection using a CCD camera.
