Laser Cooling Mechanisms of Chromium Atomic Beam
A theoretical investigation of 52Cr atomic beam in optical traps was reported, the Doppler and sub-Doppler laser cooling forces were discussed and some characteristics of these forces were shown based on the semi-classical theory. The simulative results indicate that the atomic beam can be collimated by these laser cooling forces, especially by sub-Doppler laser cooling force.
