Interacting Quantum Gases of Lithium and Ytterbium
This dissertation describes the development of a scientic apparatus for trapping ultracold quantum gases of atomic lithium and ytterbium, and discusses the studies of interactions between such particles under a range of experimental conditions. The atoms are sequentially magneto-optically trapped and cooled, and subsequently ...
Experiments in the Ultracold Lithium - Ytterbium System
I detail the construction of an experimental apparatus created for performing ultracold atomic experiments with fermionic lithium-6 (Li) and several isotopes of ytterbium (Yb), and several of the first experiments performed using this apparatus. The apparatus consists of a vacuum chamber, laser and auxiliary systems, which ...
