Laser system to laser-cool and trap cadmium: Towards a cadmium optical lattice clock

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We use frequency doubling and summing to generate >1 W of 326 nm to laser cool cadmium. Other wavelengths, 361, 468, and 480 nm, are also generated from the high power fiber amplifier. We developed an FPGA controller to automatically lock the system.
