We have developed a relatively simple and compact Sr experiment designed for cavity QED with Sr atoms in a miniature ring resonator. The vacuum setup has a total length of 40cm including oven, Zeeman slower and glass cell, and routinely produces 2x10^7 87Sr atoms in the MOT with an oven temperature of 440°C. The slower does not require magnetic coils on its own as it exploits the far field of appropriately designed MOT coils, further reducing complexity and power consumption. The laser system uses master-slave architecture throughout and does not require SHG or other high-power lasers.
We also present first results on the optical properties of a miniature ring cavity with laser-machined mirrors that will be used in this experiment.
