Product Description

Product Description

The Physics Platform is a highly flexible complete opto-mechanical package to enable the production of cold and ultracold atom samples in a RuBECi® or Double MOT vacuum system. The platform consists of two stages: a 2D+ MOT for producing a two-dimensional (2D) magneto-optical trap (MOT) in the lower chamber; and a Six-Beam MOT Stage for creating a six-beam three-dimensional (3D) MOT in the science chamber. It also includes optics for optical pumping and imaging of cold and ultracold atoms in the science chamber. Like the Physics Station, the Physics Platform has excellent optical access, but provides the user with increased flexibility to modify and add on to the system.
