We have investigated the use of a moving or "Doppler" mirror to probe laser cooled atoms. The device uses the Doppler shift induced on reflection at a moving surface to modulate the frequency of a probing laser beam, with a modulation bandwidth and frequency resolution sufficient for the narrow spectral features typically encountered. We anticipate that the device could be a simple and cost-effective alternative to acousto-optic modulators for cold atom spectroscopy, and demonstrate its usefulness by performing stimulated optical Compton scattering on an optical molasses.
