Default Best material for atom storage box?

I'm kind of on a budget so am looking for a sturdy but affordable material for this project, which will be around 12" x 6" and about 8" tall.

Thanks.

Just 1 atom, or many?

Wouldn't that depend upon how good of a vacuum could be achieved inside of the container?

Peace,

It would also depend on what the atom is. Hydrogen can leak through the smallest gap, and liquid helium can sometimes travel uphill.

Think he's talking about an Atom CPU board.

Atoms have CPU boards? Wow, ten years of chemistry education and that never came up.

A focused far off resonance light field in a vacuum is probably the best container for atoms. A 100w CO2 laser off ebay might do the trick, depending on the kind of atom of course.

If the question is indeed veered towards an Atom processor board, a box made of MDF or Birch multiplex lined with copper foil could work. Or some box from Hammond, they have a wide variety of cases and boxes from cheap to expensive. You often can even choose between metric and imperial screws.

That's cause they didn't know much about CPU boards back in 1956-1966, SY.

We barely know about atoms. My first Chem professor was Democritus.

Whew! I am so happy someone clarified the original question. I was a bit distraught for a while. Regards
