Website Detail Page

written by the Physics Central
published by the American Physical Society
This article gives details of how physicists use lasers to trap and cool particles and atoms, and to slow the speed of light.  The site explains the inner workings and setup of this technique that has already resulted in atoms that are cooled to less than a millionth of a degree Kelvin.  Links to further information are included.
