Enhancement of laser cooling by the use of magnetic gradients

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Albrecht, Andreas; Retzker, Alex; Wunderlich, Christof; Plenio, Martin B.;

We present a laser cooling scheme for trapped ions and atoms using a combination of laser couplings and a magnetic gradient field. In a Schrieffer-Wolff transformed picture, this setup cancels the carrier and blue sideband terms completely resulting in an improved cooli... View more
