Paper Abstract

In this work we present an investigation of velocity-selective coherent population trapping (VSCPT) in asymmetric three-level schemes. The light force in such schemes is of an intrinsically transient character and should not be described in a quasiclassical approach. Instead, results of the full quantum-mechanical calculations are presented with emphasis on their meaning to the efficiency of subrecoil laser cooling.
