A compact source of ultracold ytterbium for an optical lattice clock

Abstract

In this paper, we present the development of a compact source of ultracold Yb atoms for an optical lattice clock. All laser systems that are required for the operation of the compact source are based on diode lasers. We have already implemented the first cooling stage using laser diodes at 399nm and could realize a magnetooptical trap of 174Yb with 3 × 107… (More)
