Making, probing and understanding a MOT

Ultra-cold atoms confined in the coherent electromagnetic fields have gained considerable attention in the research community. These systems provide a high degree of exibility and parameter tunability that makes them excellent candidates for modelling quantum systems. They allow us to investigate fundamental behaviour of quantum matter in a pristine fashion. To this end, one needs to implement several experimental techniques for harnessing the true potential of cold atoms. Along with the cooling and trapping techniques, the precise characterization methods allow one to investigate the properties of these systems with high accuracy. In this talk, I will describe the techniques we have used for studying our cold-atomic samples and controlling our experiments.

Keywords : Doppler Cooling, Saturation Absorption Spectroscopy (SAS), Magneto-Optical Trap (MOT), Absorption Imaging, LabVIEW FPGA.
