Abstract

The isotope selectivity of the strontium (Sr) magneto-optical trap (MOT) is measured by a time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometer. The thermally generated Sr atoms are slowed down by the Zeeman slowing technique and trapped by the magneto-optical method. The trapped atoms are photoionized by the nonresonant two-photon ionization, and the generated ions are analyzed by the TOF mass spectrometer. The isotope selectivity of the MOT is up to approximately 2000 for Sr86, and the overall selectivity of the system, which consists of the MOT and the mass spectrometer is also discussed.
