Pulse shaping for broadband photoassociation of cold molecules

Abstract:

The development of the field of the science of ultra-cold matter has opened some exciting possibilities in exploring the quantum-mechanical processes which dominate matter interactions at the sub-microscopic scale. Although methods of cooling atoms are well established, molecular cooling is made difficult by molecules’ additional vibrational and rotational degrees of freedom. It was the goal of the research in this work to approach molecular cooling indirectly, by using broadband shaped-pu...
