Atomic Seminar
Laser cooling and trapping of dysprosium
Time: 10:00 am
Place: 5310 Chamberlin
Speaker: Seo Ho Youn, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Abstract: I present details of the dysprosium (Dy) laser cooling and trapping apparatus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that has recently produced a magneto-optically and magneto-statically trapped Dy gas. I also discuss unique MOT/MT dynamics and anisotropic sub-Doppler laser cooling of Dy. At the end of the talk, I conclude with a current status of Dy experiment and a prospect toward quantum degeneracy.
