Abstract
We developed a laser system at 457 nm based on a CW ring Ti:Sap laser and an enhanced cavity SHG in LBO and KN crystals with linewidth < 30 KHz for interferometry experiments with Mg atomic beams. For laser cooling and deflection of a Mg beam, a laser system at 285 nm based on a ring R6G CW dye laser and SHG in BBO nonlinear crystal has been realized. The results of Mg interferometry experiments in four-beam Borde' geometry and the results of Zeeman cooling experiments in a transverse magnetic field are presented. Zero order interference fringes corresponding to the recoil doublet with the resolution of approximately 30 KHz were detected. A Mg beam with a flux of approximately 1011 atoms/s, the mean velocity of approximately 200 m/s, and the width of velocity distribution of approximately 50 m/s (FWHM) have been obtained.
