Abstract
Dark optical traps use repulsive light forces to confine atoms mostly in the dark where their interaction with the trapping light is largely reduced, to enable long coherence times of the trapped atoms combined with tight confinement. We report on single-beam dark optical traps for ultra-cold atoms. These traps were used to demonstrate new spectroscopic and dynamical effects of the trapped atoms, including the observation of regular and chaotic motion in so called optical "billiards."
