bird's eye view of the EIT chassis with the Single Particl Trap
installed. A microscope objective (not seen here) is built into the
Single Particle Trap. Light from this objective is reflected 90
degrees by a prism (behind the trap), and an image is projected onto
the camera sensor.|
Switching between the two optical configurations (one for the Ring Trap and Linear Trap, the other for the Single Particle Trap) is quite simple and takes about five minutes.
