Cs-Cs scattering in a juggling fountain

Abstract

Atoms in an atomic fountain is juggled by launching two balls of laser-cooled Cs atoms in rapid succession. The two balls collide near the top of the fountain trajectory, and the velocity of the scattered atoms is detected, giving information on the differential scattering cross sections. The collision energy is scanned by varying the time delay between the two launches. A time delay of 7 ms corresponds to a collision energy of 19 μK, and scattering at energies as high as 100 μK is observed.
