The two photon transition between the 1s and 2s states is an ideal

Lyman-α source for laser cooling antihydrogen

able for antihydrogen studies because the high vacuum within the cryogenic apparatus leads to very long trap lifetimes (>1000 s)[12,17]. In [26], hydrogen was laser cooled by directing radiation along only one axis of the trap, and elastic collisions between the hydrogen atoms were relied on to maintain thermal equi-librium.

H atoms that are cold enough to be trapped for laser spectroscopy promise to provide the most stringent CPT tests with baryons and leptons [2], along with more sensitive tests for possible extensions to the standard model [10], building on the high accuracy of hydrogen spectroscopy [11]. It may even be possible to directly observe

Looking at the antiworld

The enormous strides now being made in cooling, trapping, storing and manipulating charged and neutral particles, as well as in ultra high precision laser spectroscopy should soon change this.

Hydrogen is dif-ficult to laser cool in practice because of its low mass and the short wavelength of its laser-cooling transition at Lyman-α (121.56 nm) in the VUV (vacuum ultravi-olet). Renewed interest in radiation at Lyman-α for laser cooling comes from the recent production of cold antihydrogen atoms
