Strontium Lab

Welcome to the Strontium Lab.
We study quantum many-body physics with ultracold
strontium atoms trapped in optical lattices.

We found a way to cool strontium atoms much more quickly to the micro-Kelvin regime. To do this, we only illuminate one axis of our magneto-optical traps at a time and sweep the lasers across the resonance every 50 microseconds. Although the excited-state atomic lifetime is only 21 microseconds, this method greatly improves the robustness and speed of our magneto-optical traps for both bosonic and fermionic isotopes.

Have a look at our preprint on the Physics arXiv.
