Homework Help: Paper on Laser Trapping and Cooling

  1. Mar 16, 2010 #1
    Hey everybody, this is not exactly a homework question, but I am writing a term paper on the topic of laser trapping and cooling, and would appreciate any good sources that anyone could provide. This is an undergraduate thermal physics class, and does not need to be extremely technical.

    Thanks very much for any help.

    I used to do research in this area. Are you doing just laser trapping and cooling or are you looking at BEC? There is a good physics lab here: http://www.colorado.edu/physics/phys3340/phys3340_sp10/.

    If your university has good journal subscriptions go to the aps website and search the journals.

    I am mainly writing on laser trapping, but I think it would be good to mention BEC as an application.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I'll get right to it.
