Welcome on the webpage of the Ultracold Atoms group led by David Guéry-Odelin at the Université Paul Sabatier
We are part of the Laboratoire Collisions, Agrégats, Réactivité
(LCAR) of the IRSAMC
institute, and currently work on the physics of guided atom lasers.
Latest newsNovember 15th, 2010:
We have a MOT with several 1010
atoms in the new setup, loaded in about one second by a novel type of Zeeman slower using permanent magnets in a Halbach configuration. See here
for a video of the MOT, and here
for many more details about the slower. The preprint arXiv:1101.3243
(submitted to Rev. Sci. Instr.) describes the slower in great details.
