Interspecies thermalization in an ultracold mixture of Cs and Yb in an optical trap

Interspecies thermalization in an ultracold mixture of Cs and Yb in an optical trap We present measurements of interspecies thermalization between ultracold samples of Cs133 and either Yb174 or Yb170. The two species are trapped in a far-off-resonance optical dipole trap and Cs133 is sympathetically cooled by Yb. We extract effective interspecies thermalization cross sections by fitting the thermalization measurements to a kinetic model, giving σCsYb174=5±2×10−13cm2 and σCsYb170=18±8×10−13cm2. We perform quantum scattering calculations of the thermalization cross sections and optimize the CsYb interaction potential to reproduce the measurements. We predict scattering lengths for all isotopic combinations of Cs and Yb. We also demonstrate the independent production of Yb174 and Cs133 Bose-Einstein condensates using the same optical dipole trap, an important step toward the realization of a quantum-degenerate mixture of the two species. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review A American Physical Society (APS)

Abstract

We present measurements of interspecies thermalization between ultracold samples of Cs133 and either Yb174 or Yb170. The two species are trapped in a far-off-resonance optical dipole trap and Cs133 is sympathetically cooled by Yb. We extract effective interspecies thermalization cross sections by fitting the thermalization measurements to a kinetic model, giving σCsYb174=5±2×10−13cm2 and σCsYb170=18±8×10−13cm2. We perform quantum scattering calculations of the thermalization cross sections and optimize the CsYb interaction potential to reproduce the measurements. We predict scattering lengths for all isotopic combinations of Cs and Yb. We also demonstrate the independent production of Yb174 and Cs133 Bose-Einstein condensates using the same optical dipole trap, an important step toward the realization of a quantum-degenerate mixture of the two species.
