Abstract : Work in several areas of laser cooling and trapping of atoms were done during the granting period. Work in atom manipulation with Raman pulses of light, atom interferometers, atomic fountain frequency standards, a new technique in subrecoil laser cooling, novel far detuned optical dipole traps, polymer experiments with single molecules of DNA are described. The work includes seven Physical Review Letters, two Science articles and a cover article for Science.
