Abstract

The coupling between nonresonant laser radiation and gas through absorption of energy and momentum from an optical lattice is examined analytically and numerically in the collisional regime. The energy and momentum depositions are studied and indicate the formation of gas jets in free space and a bulk drift in a capillary. Analytical expressions describing the energy and momentum transfer from the lattice to the gas in a collisional regime are developed and compared with the numerical predictions obtained with the direct simulation Monte Carlo method. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
