Theoretical seminar | 09 December 2020
This talk is based on my PhD thesis and consists of two major parts. The first one is devoted to the theory of light scattering from a Bose-Einstein condensate. The second one describes the Raman Sideband Cooling mechanism which we explored for a single atom in an optical dipole trap. We developed a theory allowing to lower the single atom energy till the ground one. This single atom is treated as a qubit in our MSU colleagues setup that is why this cooling mechanism is essential to reduce any deleterious effects related to the residual atomic motion in a dipole trap.
