Abstract

In the pursuit of developing an optical lattice clock with mercury as the quantum absorber, we describe an experiment that produces dipole lattice trapping of neutral mercury atoms. We report on the details of an optical lattice trap with light near the predicted magic wavelength and on the implementation of a low noise detection system.
