Scattering May Extend Laser Cooling

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Daniel S. Burgess

Laser cooling, also known as optical molasses, has found numerous scientific applications since its development 15 years ago, including the production of Bose-Einstein condensates, Fermi degenerate gas and more precise atomic clocks, but its use is limited to particular types of atoms. Now researchers at Stanford University, including Steven Chu, who shared the 1997 Nobel Prize in physics for his contributions in developing the technique, are investigating a more comprehensive method of cooling matter. The new technique, cooling by coherent scattering, may enable scientists to...Read full article
