Product Description

The miniMOT SE is a more compact and simpler version of the popular miniMOT. With cold atoms almost at your fingertips the miniMOT SE can help revitalize a traditional physics curriculum allowing students to participate in practical quantum experiments rapidly. No knowledge of vacuum processing or vacuum technology is needed as the miniMOT SE is shipped under vacuum. After a MOT is created the user can easily perform measurements such as atom number, cloud temperature, or loading rate.
