Abstract
Deceleration of an atomic beam of calcium was achieved by using the radiation of a frequency double diode laser at 845.2 nm. In order to enhance the violet beam generation the doubling crystal, KNbO3, is placed inside an external build-up cavity. The laser beam at 423 nm, counter- propagating with the atomic beam, is put into resonance with the 1S0 yields 1P1 transition of Ca. To keep the laser in resonance with the atomic transition during the cooling process, the Zeeman technique is used.
