Paper Abstract

The motion of atoms in a dark magneto-optical lattice is considered. This lattice is formed by a nonuniformly polarized laser field in the presence of a static magnetic field. Cold atoms are localized in the vicinity of points where dark states are not destroyed by a magnetic field. As a result, the optical interaction tends to zero (dark or gray lattices). Depending on the field configuration, such a lattice can exhibit one, two, or three-dimensional periodicity. It is shown that in 1D and 2D, mark magneto- optical lattices the effects connected with the Bose- statistics of particles can be observed under the temperature 10-5 - 10-6K and densities 1011 - 1012cm-3, those are usual for current experiments on laser cooling.
