Research Institution
We are proposing a novel architecture for a rubidium-metal vapor circulating system. This system has the benefits of long lifetime, extensive use of COTS equipment, and the ability to provide clean helium gas which could be used as gas curtains to protect optical windows. The system will be designed from lightweight materials and individual subsystems will be designed as LRUs for maintainability.
