Abstract:

Progress Report discusses design and construction of a new large bore 3 in. atom slower and trap which will use cryogenics both to produce ultra-low vacuums and to enable use of superconducting magnet technology. The vacuum and cryogenic dewar is under construction, the longitudinal magnets have been built, and the trap magnet has been successfully tested. Considerable effort was also devoted to major renovations of our laboratory space including installation of a 18 in. hole to the newly acquired laboratory space below our laser lab - this will permit use of a vertical configuration for the apparatus, which is roughly 5 meters long.
