The Radiation Entropy in Laser Cooling Process

  • Hideya Gamo
Conference paper


The laser cooling of atoms has made great progress beyond the Doppler limit I and even beyond the recoil limit by using the polarization gradients (the atomic sisyphus effect)2 and velocity-selective coherent population trapping (VSCPT)3.
