Abstract

We have experimentally studied multiple side-band generation for two-frequency components injected into a tapered amplifier (TA) and demonstrated its effects on atomic laser cooling. A heterodyne frequency-beat measurement and a Fabry–Perot interferometer have been applied to analyze the side-band generation with different experimental parameters, such as frequency difference, injection laser power, and TA current. In laser-cooling potassium40 and potassium41 with hyperfine splitting of 1.3 GHz and 254 MHz, respectively, the side-band generation with a small frequency difference has a significant effect on the number of trapped atoms.
