Atomic dipole trap formed by blue detuned strong Gaussian standing wave

Abstract:

We have investigated the properties of a standing-wave configuration of Gaussian laser beams which gives a linear array of three-dimensional atomic dipole traps. This is achieved by two counter-propagating waves with different beam waists so that at the nodes the field intensity of the standing wave is not completely cancelled at all radial positions across the beam. This creates an intensity dip in both the axial and radial directions that can be used as an atomic trap for blue detuning of t...
