Summary on Grant Application Form
The research team will undertake an iterative design activity, combining our Magneto Optical Trap (MOT) design and optimization experience with that of the Quantum Technology (QT) groups at the Universities of Sussex and Nottingham and with the Design for Additive Manufacture (DfAM) capabilities at Added Scientific Ltd (ASL), a leading organisation in Additive Manufacturing Research.

In support of the above the following specific research activities will be undertaken:

- Dr. Orucevic and Prof. Kruger will undertake the design, testing and implementation of main MOT

structures and auxiliary structures;

- Different operational schemes of MOT will be explored and characterised (e.g., 2D MOT, 2D+ MOT,

pyramidal MOT, etc.);

- The system integration of MOTs with other devices, for example atom chips and printed circuit boards

(PCB), will be tested;

- Prototypes will be investigated both separately and as a part of larger experimental cold-atom setup.
