The attached picture shows a rubidium vacuum cell that was recently manufactured in the glass shop at Torr scientific.
It is shown in the upside down position.
Once the cell is placed under vacuum, a small steel bar (which lives in the small side port) will be moved via an external magnet and used to break the small bent tube on top of the glass cell containing the rubidium, this will release it into the cell. A leak valve on the DN16CF mounting flange will then be used to bleed the rubidium into the vacuum system as required.
The cell was designed and manufactured for the Atom Interferometry team in the Quantum Technology Group at the University of Birmingham in the UK (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/heroes/quantum-technologies.aspx)
