of atoms. Semi-classical and quantum treatments
of Doppler and sub-Doppler laser cooling will be
discussed, along with optical trapping, magnetic
trapping, and hybrid traps. The course will also
explore applications, including optical lattices,
atom optics, Bose-Einstein condensates, and
Fermi degenerate gases.
