Abstract

We have produced a sample of laser-cooled atoms in a micro-fabricated alkali vapor cell using a grating MOT to direct the beams. We show that by detecting the blue fluorescence resulting from a two-photon cascade transition, we improve the rejection of cooling light scattered from the grating.
