Optical Setup

When the experiment is running, every single piece of optics on the table is in use. Two laser systems each deliver a yellow laser beam, and the optics on the table split these two initial laser beams into very many different beams that are frequency-shifted and intensity-modulated. All these laser beams are required for implementation of laser cooling and probing of Bose-Einstein condensates, and of course for light slowing. (Unit: 7)
