Vacutec Ultra-cold ion trapping and cooling system

Model: 
Ultra-cold ion trapping and cooling system
Make: 
Supplier: 

The system is a combination of many different instruments jointly serving to trap and laser-cool ionized atoms for studies in quantum phenomena. The instruments include: an ultra-high vacuum system with roughing pump, turbo pump, ion pump and titanium sublimation pump, four narrow-band diode lasers at 369 nm (Toptical), 398 nm (Moglabs), 638 nm (Toptical), and 935 nm (Toptical) optical chopper wheel, balanced photo detectors, rf generator, oscilloscopes, microwave generator, arbitrary waveform generator, Hollow cathode discharge lamps, Lockin amp, UV phototube, stable frequency reference, FPGA system and a large number of optics and electronics.
