Paper Abstract

Here we report some initial results in the study of optical pumping and laser cooling of metastable Mg atomic beam. Eighty-five percent of optical pumping efficiency and laser cooling effect have been observed. We have successfully used frequency doubled diode laser in the experiments as a velocity analysis light source because diode laser is important for making a practical magnesium frequency standard.
