Deep sub-Doppler cooling of Mg in MOT formed by light waves with elliptical polarization

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We study magneto-optical trap (MOT) of Mg atoms operating on the closed triplet 3P23D3 (λ = 383.3 nm) transition formed by the light waves with elliptical polarization ( configuration). Compare to well-known trap formed by light waves with circular polarization (σ +- configuration) the suggested configuration offer the lower sub-Doppler temperature for trapped Mg atoms, that can't be reached in conventional σ +- MOT.
