We aim to widen the range of quantum simulations with cold atoms investigating phenomena arising from the long-ranged dipolar interaction in reduced dimensionalities. We are designing and assembling a new apparatus for the production and manipulation of quantum gases of highly magnetic Dysprosium atoms. This is a joint project of LENS and INO-CNR.

Vacuum setup completed

We finished assembling the vacuum setup. In the final cell, we included a passive high finesse optical resonator to transfer a large volume of atoms from the MOT to an optical trap that requires low power.
