Abstract

Optical dipole traps and atom chips are two very powerful tools for the quantum manipulation of neutral atoms. We demonstrate that both methods can be combined by creating an optical lattice potential on an atom chip. A red-detuned laser beam is retroreflected using the atom chip surface as a high-quality mirror, generating a vertical array of purely optical oblate traps. We transfer thermal atoms from the chip into the lattice and observe cooling into the two-dimensional regime. Using a chip-generated Bose–Einstein condensate, we demonstrate coherent Bloch oscillations in the lattice.

Fig. 1

Setup to create an optical lattice on an atom chip (not to scale, θ 87 ° ). A focused laser beam ( 50 μ m ) is reflected from the central part of a 100 μ m wide Z-shaped trapping wire and forms a standing light wave (inset, λ multiplied by 100 for visualization).

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Observation of Bloch oscillations of a BEC accelerated by gravity. (Left) Series of TOF images with increasing interaction time with the optical lattice. Each vertical line corresponds to a single absorption image, integrated along the horizontal direction. (Right) Momentum distribution at specific times, indicated by arrows of corresponding color (left-most arrow corresponds to the uppermost curve) in the left graph.
