Abstract

We theoretically investigate the use of Bessel light beams generated using axicons for creating optical dipole traps for cold atoms and atomic waveguiding. Zeroth-order Bessel beams can be used to produce highly elongated dipole traps, allowing for the study of one-dimensional trapped gases and realization of a Tonks gas of impenetrable bosons. First-order Bessel beams are shown to be able to produce tight confined atomic waveguides over centimeter distances.
