He, Yuanlei — Multifrequency Slower for MOT

This project will give an approach to using multiple frequencies of light to enhance the loadingof a Magneto-Optical Trap (MOT). An electro-optical modulator will be used to produce frequency andintensity tunable sidebands, enabling the nature of slowing to be controlled, and thus optimized, bythe user. There are some basic computational simulations that have been done so far. The motivation for this project and some basic ideas will be introduced in this presentation.
