The experiment aims at the generation of hybrid quantum systems, combining ultracold atomic physics and superconductivity. Recent results suggested the possibility of tailoring current distributions in a superconducting atomchip wire and thereby creating arbitrarily shaped trapping structures. A quenching setup has been implemented, which allows for erasing the remnant magnetization of the superconducting wire. Employing a high power laser, it is utilized for resetting the superconductor to its virgin state within milliseconds. By means of an array of magnetic coils, cold 87Rb atoms are transported from a room temperature MOT chamber to a 4K cryogenic environment. These atoms are highly sensitive to magnetic fields, which makes them a useful tool for field sensing. In order to maximize the atom count, the entire MOT setup has been optimized. This resulted in up to 3x10^9 atoms with a temperature of 500-600K. Around 3 x10^8 atoms reach the cold science chamber, where they are prepared for loading into a chip trap, utilizing evaporative cooling with an rf source. This cooling phase has recently been extended and should result in a very dense atom cloud soon. Although it still has room for improvement, atom cloud temperatures of the order of 10K in a QUIC trap have been observed. In the near future, measurements are expected to give new insights into the hysteresis behavior of type-II superconductors. This will open up new perspectives on both probing and utilizing specific properties of superconducting surfaces, employing ultracold atoms as field sensors.
