    • Trapping cold rubidium in a fiber 

      Brown, David Ross, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
      In this thesis, we demonstrate the novel technique of loading cold ⁸⁷Rb into a red-detuned optical dipole trap within a hollow core photonic fiber. This confines the atoms to 6 microns in two dimensions. We initially cooled ...
