        Format:born digital; doctoral dissertations
        The work presented in this thesis focuses on the demonstration and initial evaluation of a novel non-evaporative cooling method called collision-assisted Zeeman cooling. For this realization, an ultracold gas consisting ...
      • Spatially-selective optical pumping cooling and two-isotope collision-assisted Zeeman cooling 

        Author(s):Wilson, Rebekah Ferrier
        Date Issued:2014
        Format:born digital; doctoral dissertations
        In this thesis I describe two non-evaporative cooling schemes for cooling Rb atoms. The first is a Sisyphus-like ultracold gas cooling scheme called Spatially-selecTive Optical Pumping (STOP) cooling. In principle, STOP ...
