Abstract
Present status of laser cooling experiments in NRLM is presented. Laser cooling and trapping experiments for cesium atoms are continued in NRLM to develop an atomic fountain frequency standard. As a first step, we performed Cs atomic beam deceleration and trapping experiments. Atomic beam cesium atoms were decelerated by counterpropagating radiation from semiconductor laser diodes. The laser frequency was chirped to keep it in resonance with the decelerated atoms. The decelerated atoms were trapped by six mutually orthogonal laser beams in a magneto-optical trap configuration. The atoms could also be trapped directly from ambient cesium gas in a glass cell without using the deceleration laser beam. The characteristics of the trapped atoms are reported.
