Abstract
ABSTRACT: This research focuses on the development of a system for producing and imaging ultracold atoms in optical lattice potentials. Utilizing hybrid magnetic and optical atom chip technology, the system will provide a simple and robust means to perform experiments with optical lattice potentials. This hybrid atom chip approach will also provide high numerical aperture access to the atomic samples. BENEFIT: Ultracold and cold matter systems will have substantial impact on arenas of DoD interest, including inertial sensing, magnetic field sensing, timekeeping, and related areas of commercial and scientific interest. The system developed under this proposal will significantly lower the entrance barrier to experimental work with ultracold atoms in optical lattices.
