Download "Cool" Simulation (Version 1.1)

If you get one of these files,   LET ME KNOW, so I can keep you informed of upgrades!

Cool (2.1MB and loads of fun) This .Zip file includes the .Exe, .Hlp, and .Dll files as well as other supporting files for Visual Basic. Download the .Zip and unzip it. Then, run the Setup.exe program. Enjoy!!
Exsetup Movie (469KB) Here it is!! (after much sweat and conversion) This .AVI shows the experimental setup for laser cooling and trapping. Play it in Cool or on any .AVI movie player
Cold Cesium (130KB) This is a movie shows a cold, dense cloud of cesium atoms created in the laboratory!!
Trap! (257KB) This .AVI shows the Magneto-Optic Trap (MOT). Its starts with optical molasses and then suddenly the magnetic field gradient is applied and the trap forms. The field is turned off and the cloud slowly spreads.
Optical Molasses (129KB) Here is a simulation created using Cool. It demonstrates what "Cool" people call Optical Molasses. Try it out! (or just make your own!)
Dark MOT (161KB) Another simulation which demonstrates a dark magneto-optic trap (MOT). Download this or make your own!
Light MOT (91 KB) Another simulation which demonstrates a light magneto-optic trap (MOT). Download this or make your own!
Light to Dark MOT (243KB) This a simulation that starts as a light MOT then changes to a dark MOT
Dark to Light MOT (252KB) This simulation starts as a dark MOT then changes to a light MOT
