Dual MOT is running

After a lot of mucking around with overhead tables, the new labs overheating and non-working water cooling, we finally have both magneto-optical traps working. The dipole trap is lined up and ready to go. So BEC soon we hope.


Now we finally have a new web page, which will grow some content as time goes on. The starting point should be the welcome page.

At the moment, experiments are underway to investigate higher order quantum resonances in the atom optics implementation of the delta-kicked rotor. Things are working well, despite the building renovations and our recent bout of problems.
