NEW miniMOT SE

ColdQuanta’s miniMOT SE™ is a more compact version of our 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 and without prior knowledge in vacuum processing or indeed the equipment required to create an ultrahigh vacuum.  Available with a Rubidium or Cesium source.

miniMOT SE kit

The kit contains the miniMOT SE and coils on a 12″ × 18″ (300 mm x 450 mm) aluminum breadboard with a periscope/beamsplitting/polarization assembly; mirrors for ease of trap alignment and a small B&W CCD camera for MOT imaging. This compact kit enables the user to produce a MOT with or without the optical expertise normally required to design, acquire, and setup his or her own system. This pre-assembled unit permits significant time and cost savings. It is an indispensable tool for teaching cold atom physics.

While the configuration has been preset for optimal ease of use, it is simple to adjust for both minor and radical changes. The miniMOT SE Kit has a lower beam height of 1.5″ and a beam expanding telescope with a magnification of 22.2X (100mm/4.51mm @ 780). Aside from the miniMOT SE kit the customer will need two lasers (or single laser and modulator) and coupling optics.

The miniMOT™ kit

ColdQuanta’s optomechanics kit with the original miniMOT  is designed for either the seasoned researcher or a student in a physics lab to produce a rubidium MOT easily and rapidly. The kit contains the miniMOT™ and coils on a 15” x 18” aluminum breadboard with a periscope/beamsplitting/polarization assembly; mirrors for ease of trap alignment, integrated coil driver and a small B&W CCD camera for MOT imaging. This compact kit enables the researcher, educator or student to produce a MOT with or without the optical expertise normally required to design, acquire, and setup their own system. Elegant in design, it is simple to use and producing a live MOT is achievable in hours. Significant time and cost savings can be realized by using this pre-assembled unit.

The miniMOT™ Kit has a lower beam height of 1.5″ and a focusing system with a magnification of 16X (75mm/4.51mm @ 780). Aside from the miniMOT™ kit the customer will need two lasers (or single laser and modulator), and coupling optics to produce a MOT.
