Title: A laser diode system and its use in a laser cooling experiment
Author: Bradley, Curtis Charles
Advisor: Hulet, Randall G.
Degree: Master of Arts thesis
Abstract: A system to control and stabilize the output of visible laser diodes was developed and used to measure the velocity distribution of lithium atoms in a laser cooling experiment. Circuitry was designed and built for controlling the diode temperature and current, and optical feedback from a grating was used to further tune the laser and to narrow its lineshape. In the experiment, atoms from a thermal lithium beam were slowed to near zero velocity using a multi-frequency relay chirp technique.
