Ultracold Mixtures


We are building an experiment for degenerate Bose-Fermi mixtures for fermionic Lithium 6 and bosonic Caesium 133 atoms. Our aim is to study Bose-Fermi mixtures in low dimensions in close proximity to a chip surface; this environment is also ideally suited to create ultracold molecules.

Current status 
we currently can load about 109 Lithium and 108 Caesium atoms into our double-MOT. We have recently included our Feshach coils, which produce magnetic fields up to 1200G and new gradient coils, which provide a gradient up to 55 G/cm. The dipole trap has been tested, is now up and running and will be included into the system in the next step. Exciting physics ahead….
