Magneto-optical trap (MOT) kit from Toptica Photonics features spectroscopy modules

Sept. 8, 2011
The Magneto-Optical Trap (MOT), the most popular laser cooling and trapping setup, uses a vacuum system with optical access and a magnetic quadrupole field to trap the atoms.

The Magneto-Optical Trap (MOT), the most popular laser cooling and trapping setup, uses a vacuum system with optical access and a magnetic quadrupole field to trap the atoms. Narrow linewidth, frequency-stabilized lasers with spectroscopy modules and locking electronics produce an effective atomic cloud of cooled, trapped neutral atoms. These low-density, slow-moving atoms can provide quantum information for measurements, scientific research, and student education.

PRESS RELEASE

Magneto-Optical Trap (MOT)
Create your own laser-cooled atomic cloud

TOPTICA Photonics – key supplier of lasers, locking electronics and spectroscopy units for laser cooling experiments – now offers the first commercial MOT kit in cooperation with ColdQuanta Inc. A MOT, the most popular laser cooling and trapping setup, uses a vacuum system with optical access and a magnetic quadrupole field to trap the atoms. Narrow linewidth, frequency-stabilized TOPTICA lasers (TA pro, DL pro, DL DFB), with spectroscopy modules and locking electronics produce an effective atomic cloud of cooled, trapped, neutral atoms. These low-density, slow-moving atoms can provide quantum information for high-precision measurements, scientific research and student education.

Come to the TOPTICA booth (B1.117) at the LASER World of Photonics Show 2011 to see a live rubidium MOT demonstration with our supercompact,
dynamic system.

Available products are:

miniMOTTM: A revolutionary small vacuum system with glass cell,
ion pump and rubidium dispenser.

Key features:

Excellent optical access

Welded vacuum chamber assembly

Compact footprint (8.5x4.5”x5.125”, 216x114x130mm3)

Integrated electronics and mounting hardware for vertical
optics

miniMOTTM + Coils: miniMOTTM + mounted anti-Helmholtz coils for required magnetic quadrupole field generation

miniMOTTM kit: miniMOTTM + coils + optics, opto-mechanics and camera to set up a complete MOT. Just add frequency-stabilized lasers to create your own laser-cooled and trapped Rb cloud

Lasers + references kit: DL pro/TA pro + CoSy + wavelength meters – all required lasers, spectroscopy units and locking modules to complete the MOT setup

TOPTICA Photonics AG develops, manufactures, services and distributes technology-leading diode and fiber lasers and laser systems for scientific and industrial applications. Sales and service are offered worldwide through TOPTICA Germany and its subsidiary TOPTICA USA, as well as through 14 distributors. A key point of the company philosophy is the close cooperation between development and research to meet our customers’ demanding requirements for sophisticated customized system solutions and their subsequent commercialization.
