As strontium and other alkaline-earth metals become increasingly attractive for ultracold-atom applications, there is a growing need to develop compact, robust systems for cooling, trapping, and studying these elements. In this proposal, ColdQuanta will team with Dr. Jun Ye at JILA and the University of Colorado at Boulder to develop a portable, turn-key system that can produce, utilize, and optically trap ultracold strontium atoms. The resulting system will serve as the foundation for a strontium-based optical clock or gravimeter that is field-deployable for DoD missions.
