We designed and constructed a simplified experimental system to create a Bose–Einstein condensate in 87Rb. Our system has several novel features including a mechanical atom transfer mechanism and a hybrid Ioffe–Pritchard magnetic trap. The apparatus has been designed to consistently produce a stable condensate even when it is not well optimized.
