Progress towards cooling and imaging on an alkali atom forbidden transition
Time: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Place: Sterling Hall B343
Speaker: Jacob Scott, Physics PhD Graduate Student
Abstract: I present progress towards atomic manipulation on the 6S1/2 - 5D5/2 forbidden transition in Cs. I discuss a few intriguing features of this transition, including a very high pump-depump ratio, very low Doppler temperature, and an intermediate state that allows for background free imaging. I also discuss development of the experimental apparatus and preliminary results of the experiment.
