Despite the additional efforts imposed by their production, atom chips are an interesting source for Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) since they are versatile, robust and also fast in the creation of a BEC. New applications in sensing and interferometry even live on further, expanding the functionalities on reduced outgassing and optical functionality.
On this poster we will present the recent developments of our atom chips featuring non-adhesive conjunction techniques, advanced materials and the combination of atom chips with optical gratings. This will lead to simplification and compactification of the overall setup enabling compact quantum sensors in the future. Furthermore we will show our new experiment, which is optimized for fast testing of atom chips.
