This work unites the techniques of laser cooling and matter-wave interferometry to strengthen an interferometric laser cooling process in an experimental procedure of chilly rubidium atoms. Serving as an advent to graduate point coherent optical atomic manipulation, the thesis describes the idea of motivated Raman transitions and atom interferometry, in addition to the experimental equipment for getting ready and manipulating chilly atoms, ahead of development on those foundations to discover adapted optical pulse sequences and novel atomic cooling techniques.

Interferometric cooling, initially proposed through Weitz and Hänsch in 2000, is predicated upon the coherent broadband laser pulses of Ramsey interferometry and in precept permits laser cooling of atomic and molecular species outdoor the scope of conventional Doppler laser cooling. at the course towards cooling, composite pulses – quantum blunders correction tools, constructed by way of chemists to mitigate the results of in homogeneities in NMR spectroscopy – are investigated with a view to bettering the functionality of atom interferometers.
