• # Abstract

Simultaneous laser cooling of two isotopes of krypton, $^{83}\rm{Kr}$ and $^{84}\rm{Kr}$, is reported here in a two-isotope magneto-optical trap (TIMOT). The number of cold metastable $^{83}\rm{Kr}$ atoms in this TIMOT is dependent on the power of the repumping laser beams used, which is maximised for our set-up by varying the powers of repumping lasers. These studies may be useful to investigate cold collisions between fermionic $^{83}\rm{Kr}$ and bosonic $^{84}\rm{Kr}$ atoms in the metastable state.
