A ship-in-a-bottle quantum gas microscope

Quantum gas microscopes are versatile and powerful tools to investigate lattice systems down to the single atom level. Here we present a quantum gas microscopy setup for experiments with highly magnetic atoms of the lanthanoid elements erbium and dysprosium. Our setup features a quartz glass cell, enclosed by a compact multi-shell ferromagnetic shield. Inside, a non-magnetic, non-conducting, large-working-distance, high-numerical-aperture, in-vacuum microscope objective will enable single-site imaging of our strongly dipolar atomic mixture.
