abstract: 

We construct supersymmetric AdS3×Σ solutions of minimal gauged supergravity in D = 5, where Σ is a two-dimensional orbifold known as a spindle. Remarkably, these uplift on S5, or more generally on any regular Sasaki-Einstein manifold, to smooth solutions of type IIB supergravity. The solutions are dual to d = 2, N = (0, 2) SCFTs and we show that the central charge for the gravity solution agrees with a field theory calculation associated with D3-branes wrapped on Σ.
