Fast switching of magnetic fields in a magneto-optic trap

Dedman, C. J; Colla, Massimiliano; Baldwin, Kenneth


Magneto-optic traps which employ current windings to generate pulsed magnetic fields require rapid switch-off times for many applications. Practical difficulties in attaining rapid switch-off of the magnetic field, including the generation of induced currents, are addressed. Several methods for minimizing the switch-off time are presented which do not require complex feedback mechanisms involving direct measurement of the magnetic field.
