Paper Abstract

We demonstrate an experimental technique for manipulating atom clouds with high-speed and high resolution. By combining holographically engineered laser beams from a spatial light modulator with acousto-optic deflection, we manipulate the spatial locations of multiple cold atom clouds held in dark optical traps with individual site control. Additionally, we demonstrate smooth 2-dimensional motion of atomic ensembles.
