Ground state cooling in an 1D optical lattice — •Ricardo Gomez, Carsten Robens, Isabelle Boventer, Jonathan Zopes, Wolfgang Alt, Andrea Alberti, and Dieter Meschede — Institut für Andgewante Physik (IAP), Bonn, Germany

Discrete-time quantum walks of neutral atoms in optical lattices allows to experimentally investigate complex transport phenomena, where the single constituents are allowed to coherently interact with each other [1].

We report on the ground state cooling of neutral atoms in the ground state of a 1D optical lattice. Microwave and Raman sideband cooling are used as cooling mechanisms for the axial and radial direction, respectively. To achieve a tight confinement in the radial direction, we use a blue-detuned doughnut-shaped dipole trap overlapped to the optical lattice.

The preparation in the motional ground state opens the way to use onsite coherent collisions between atoms to realize interacting quantum walks.
