Two-photon ionization of rubidium atoms in a magneto-optical trap and a Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) is experimentally investigated. Using 100 ns laser pulses, we detect single ions photoionized from the condensate with a 35(10)% efficiency.

Abstract

Two-photon ionization of rubidium atoms in a magneto-optical trap and a Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) is experimentally investigated. Using 100 ns laser pulses, we detect single ions photoionized from the condensate with a 35(10)% efficiency. The measurements are performed using a quartz cell with external electrodes, allowing large optical access for BECs and optical lattices.
