Paper Abstract

The application of stochastic cooling to trapped atoms is theoretically studied. We develop a quantum-field approach and investigate the fundamental limits of stochastic cooling, being determined by quantum-noise effects such as atom-number fluctuations and measurement back action. Moreover, using a spatially resolved operation, acting only on a fraction of the atomic cloud, is shown to lead to additional noise effects.
