  • Gastgeber: MPQ, Laser Spectroscopy Division
In this talk, I will discuss our progress in the development of a two-photon laser-cooling scheme for hydrogen. 

With a high power 243.1 nm laser source driving the 1S-2S transition, we hope to achieve rapid deceleration and cooling of an atomic hydrogen beam within a 2-D magnetic guide. In addition, I will discuss recent progress in the development of a Lyman-alpha laser source (121.6 nm) that will be used to cool trapped antihydrogen within the ATRAP collaboration.
