Abstract

A slit-type atom deflector with near-field light was developed for precise direction control of atomic motion using a dipole force. Near-field light was generated at an edge of the slit by irradiating the back-side surface with a light beam. The deflection direction could be changed with light intensity and frequency detuning over a wide range. Results demonstrated the usefulness of slit-type detector for controlling the direction in which the atoms were flying.
