Product Description

Product Description

The miniMOT is a stand-alone UHV system designed for immediate implementation into any educational or research group’s cold atom experiments. No knowledge of vacuum processing or vacuum technology is needed as the miniMOT is shipped under vacuum. Containing an integrated ion pump and drivers for the dispenser and MOT coils, the miniMOT frees either the seasoned researcher or student to focus their time on designing and building their experiment instead of the vacuum apparatus. When combined with our miniMOT Coils and miniMOT Kit the user is able to achieve a live MOT within hours (lasers and coupling optics to be provided by the user).
