Hollow fibre guides for metastable helium atoms

Dall, Robert; Hoogerland, Maarten; Buckman, Stephen; Baldwin, Kenneth


The realisation of an atomic waveguide will be an important component for the development of future atom optic devices such as large angle atom interferometers. Hollow optical fibres that employ repulsive (blue detuned) evanescent light fields to guide the atoms are one approach to this technology. We report here on multimode guiding of metastable helium (23S1) atoms through hollow optical fibres that support multimode light fields. In order to produce efficient single-mode atom guiding, hollow...[Show more]
