Paper Abstract

We study the cavity QED effects (modified decay rates and energy level shift) of an atom inside a cylindrical hollow fiber and outside a solid fiber using linear-response formalism. Next, we suggest the Sisyphus cooling process occurring inside the hollow fiber with blue-detuned evanescent wave and as a preliminary example, we show a Monte-Carlo simulation of the atoms in the conical hollow system. We also propose that the similar cooling process is expected in the dark hollow beam (doughnut beam) obtained from the hollow fiber of step index, which is more desirable than the case when atoms are inside the fiber since there is no attracting Van der Waals force.
