Abstract

We have produced an elementary, continuously operating integrated circuit for atoms. The circuit, which is realized by purely optical means, combines an atom source, a switchable channel guide, and a local atom detector within the geometry of a planar atomic waveguide at submicrometer distance from a metallic surface.
