Laser Cooling of Lithium Using Relay Chirp Cooling
We demonstrate a chirp-cooling technique that uses a laser with multiple FM sidebands to slow lithium atoms from initial velocities of as much as 1880 m/s to final velocities near zero. Compared with the use of a single sideband, this multisideband technique significantly reduces FM bandwidth requirements and provides a greater flux of slowed atoms.
