VSCPT and recoil limit on temperature

  1. May 23, 2015 #1
    I have read that it is possible to go under recoil temperature limit using VSCPT (Velocity Selective Coherent Population Trapping) and that this method is based on atoms trapping in quantum state in which they can't absorb light. I have found same papers but they are too detailed for my knowledge... can you explain slightly clearer what is this process and how it is realized?
