the process of using the force exerted by a laser to reduce the temperature of a gas, or the spread of velocities of a beam of atoms
Laser cooling refers to a number of techniques in which atomic and molecular samples are cooled down to near absolute zero through the interaction with one or more laser fields. The first example of laser cooling, and also still the most common method is Doppler cooling. Other methods of laser cooling include: ⁕Sisyphus cooling ⁕Resolved sideband cooling ⁕Velocity selective coherent population trapping ⁕Anti-Stokes inelastic light scattering ⁕Cavity mediated cooling ⁕Sympathetic cooling ⁕Use of a Zeeman slower
