Paper Abstract

It is shown that in the dark magneto-optical lattices the effects connected with the Bose-statistics of particles can be observed under the laser cooling temperature (10-4 - 10-6 K), that is orders of magnitude higher than the evaporative cooling temperature in magnetic traps. There appears the quasicondensation, when the wave function is formed at the localization distance of atoms in a single well. Apart from this, we show that the adiabatic reducing of the magnetic field leads to the increasing of the temperature and the Bose-condensation in the whole lattice can take place. The field configuration, where the form of the three-dimensional magneto-optical potential does not depend on phases of light waves, is found.
