7 April 1995 Laser trapping of trace amounts of radioactive atoms
Author Affiliations +
Small samples of radioactive atoms can now be concentrated with magneto- optic laser traps into a very small space and cooled to microdegree temperatures. The first application of these new techniques to atoms with radioactive nuclei offers new possibilities for nuclear physics measurements. The general applicability of these techniques of minute quantities of other materials is discussed.
