First evidence of cooling and trapping of Strontium atoms in 2D MOT in our SrII setup. The bright spot on the figure above corresponds to the cold atoms within a transverse view. The vacuum tubes in the form of a cross host the four laser beams. The oven is enclosed in a grey thermal shielding, shown on the left part of the figure. The bottom-left inset shown the cold atoms in an axial view. The weak distortion is due to imperfect local balance of the laser intensity.
