Blackbody-mediated rotational laser cooling schemes in MgH+, DCl+, HCl+, LiH and CsH.

Abstract:

Ensembles of ultra-cold atoms, molecules and ions (both atomic and molecular) can be held in traps for increasingly long periods of time. While these trapped species remain translationally cold, for molecules the absorption of ambient black-body radiation can result in rapid thermalisation of the rotational (and vibrational) degrees of freedom. At 300 K, internal state purity is lost typically on the order of tens of seconds, inhibiting the study of quantum state selected reactions. In this p...
