Paper Abstract

A reliable algorithm for temperature estimation of cooled atoms is proposed and investigated by 2D-Monte-Carlo simulation for the ensemble of 133Cs atoms provided time-of-flight (TOF) and spatial distributions of falling atoms are found in two planes below the atomic cloud using fluorescence or transmission measurements. We assume that the atoms, being normally distributed in space, are left to fall freely at a certain moment and we suppose that collisions between them do not cause substantial distortion of the ideal TOF-distribution.
