Abstract

A microsecond laser standing wave with much higher electric fields has the same focusing power as a continuous wave laser standing wave at near-resonance condition with Δω/ω to approximately 10-6. An experimentally practical setup that implements such a concept is proposed which shows that even with a transversely uncooled atomic beam, it would be able to produce an adatom density gratings on a substrate with good contrast ratios. The findings are expected to be applicable to all atoms and atomic clusters.
