Abstract

We present our technique to create a magneto-optical trap (MOT) for dysprosium atoms using the narrow-line cooling transition at 626 nm to achieve suitable conditions for direct loading into an optical dipole trap. The MOT is loaded from an atomic beam via a Zeeman slower using the strongest atomic transition at 421 nm. With this combination of two cooling transitions we can trap up to 2.0·108 atoms at temperatures down to 6 μK. This cooling approach is simpler than present work with ultracold dysprosium and provides similar starting conditions for a transfer to an optical dipole trap.

Schematic setup of our cold atom apparatus consisting of two main parts: a steel vacuum chamber for the MOT, and a glass cell with high optical access. The atomic beam is Zeeman slowed with 421 nm light and travels with an angle of 20° to the gravitational direction z . The atoms are captured in the steel chamber, where the radial MOT beams are aligned under an angle of 45° in respect to the horizontal and vertical axis. The atoms are absorption imaged from below with 421 nm light. The optical dipole trap (ODT) points through the glass cell to the chamber for the MOT.

(a) Atom number as a function of MOT detuning for the Dy 164 boson. Spectral broadening of the 626 frequency allows us to reach higher detuning and consequently a higher atom number N = 1.5 · 10 8 at δ 626 = 35 Γ 626 (squares). Without the spectral broadener only an atom number of N = 1.2 · 10 8 at δ 626 = 29 Γ 626 is reached (circles). (inset) The EOM broadens the orange frequency up to 70 Γ 626 , which is shown in a transmission signal of the ULE cavity. (b) The Dy 161 fermion reaches a maximal atom number of N = 2.1 · 10 7 due to the fact that only the F = 21 / 2 hyperfine state is trappable by the repumperless MOT and it also has a lower natural abundance.

(a) Atom number as a function of the loading time at δ 626 = 35 Γ 626 . By fitting the standard loading rate equation (solid lines) one obtains a capture rate R = 3.1 · 10 8 1 / s and a decay rate γ = 1.6 1 / s for I trans = 16 I s , 421 (squares) and accordingly for no transverse cooling (triangles) R = 4.0 · 10 7 1 / s and γ = 1 1 / s . (b) The transverse cooling is provided right after the oven aperture by shining in 421 nm light detuned by one linewidth. Atom number (c) and capture rate (d) are plotted as a function of the transverse cooling light intensity. The capture rate is increased by a factor of 8 and the maximum atom number by a factor of 5 due to the transverse cooling.

Atom number as a function of the holding time at a detuning δ 626 = 35 Γ 626 . The fast decay is caused by the ZS light (diamonds). A single exponential function is used to extract the time constant ( γ = 1.4 1 / s ). In the case of no ZS light (circles) Eq. (1) was used to extract the two-body loss rate (solid lines). After the first fast two-body decay, we observe one-body loss rates of around 1 / γ = 12 s , still limited by one-body scattering processes of the 626 nm light.
