Abstract
ColdQuanta"s objective is to produce a complete, turnkey, ultracold-atom system that provides reconfigurable optical control for trapping and manipulating ultracold atoms. We specifically target a compact, flexible apparatus for developing practical systems of DoD interest, such as inertial sensors, magnetometers, and atomic clocks. At the same time, the proposed system will substantially enable experiments of fundamental interest, such as the emulation of condensed matter systems.
