Abstract:

Very well controlled diode laser systems are constructed and used to produce laser cooled atoms. Very low pressures are required to study very cold atoms and a high vacuum chamber is constructed to achieve the necessary pressure. The behavior of laser trapped and cooled atoms is studied and found, not to agree with present theoretical predictions.
