Optical Trapping


We have the capability to create an optical dipole trap near the chip. We focus two beams of 1064 nm light near the location of the atom chip trap, and we can either transfer the atoms to an all-optical trap, or create a hybrid trap. In the hybrid trap, the atoms experience forces from both the static magnetic and the optical electric fields.
