Long, narrow, all-light atom guide

A 1-mm-diameter all-light atom guide capable of transporting ultracold atoms tens of centimeters with high
efficiency is described. We made the atom tunnel, a dark hollow beam that is blue detuned from resonance, by
passing a few tens of milliwatts of power from a TEM00 diode laser beam through an optical sequence composed
of three axicons and a simple lens. We demonstrate transport of 108 Cs atoms approximately 20 cm with
minimal heating. We show that it is possible for one to control the direction and speed of the atoms in the
tunnel by varying the detuning of the tunnel beam.
