Product Description

Product Description

The Physics Station is a highly sophisticated, compact opto-mechanical package designed to enable the production and detection of cold and ultracold atom samples in ColdQuanta’s double-MOT vacuum device, the RuBECi. Equipped with all the opto-mechanics necessary for double-MOT production, BEC production, and atom cloud imaging, the system is designed to provide excellent optical access. It is easy to adjust and ready to use instantly along with a compatible vacuum system and laser system. The Physics Station provides comparable functionality to the Physics Platform in a greatly condensed package, and also includes a CCD camera and imaging lens system.
