Advancements in Laser Cooling and Magnetic Trapping Techniques

G. S. Mendhe [2]

Abstract: The ability to cool, manipulate, and trap atoms using laser light has allowed a new, fast developing field to emerge. The term "laser cooling" describes a variety of methods that use one or more laser light fields to interact with atoms and molecules to cool them down to almost absolute zero.The review paper explores the advancements in laser cooling and magnetic trapping methods, focusing on their applications in achieving ultra-cold temperatures for atoms. It discussed various techniques such as Doppler cooling, optical molasses and evaporative cooling, highlighting their roles in advancing atomic clock accuracy and quantum degeneracy research.. The paper emphasizes the importance of these methods in achieving temperatures in the nano-kelvin range without cryogenic methods, marking a significant leap in atomic manipulation and study.
