Optical Cooling and Trapping (OT)


Optical Cooling and Trapping (OT)

This group is concerned with the physics of laser cooling, electromagnetic trapping and other radiative manipulation of neutral atoms, ions, dielectric particles and nanostructures. These fundamental studies are used to develop applications to new kinds of physics measurements and processes such as high resolution spectroscopy, atomic clocks, atomic collisions, atom optics, bio-molecular interactions, and atomic-scale and nano-scale fabrication. Basic studies involve Bose-Einstein condensates, cold collisions, optical lattices, optomechanics, and soft-matter interactions.

If you are attending Optical Trapping Applications in Vancouver, you are invited to join members of the Optical Cooling and Trapping Technical Group for a gathering on Tuesday, 14 April 2015. Stop by the Cactus Club Café at 7:00 PM PDT for a chance to meet up with Giovanni Volpe, who serves on the OSA Board of Meetings, and other members of this technical group to network and learn more about the technical group's activities.

Joint special issues of Optics Express and the Journal of the Optical Society of America B are being organized by the Optical Cooling and Trapping Technical Group. The issues, which will be published later this year, will be devoted to papers reporting new and challenging results in the field.
