Adaptable-radius, time-orbiting magnetic ring trap for Bose-Einstein condensates

Arnold, A.S. (2004) Adaptable-radius, time-orbiting magnetic ring trap for Bose-Einstein condensates. Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, 37 (2). L29-L33. ISSN 0953-4075

Abstract

We theoretically investigate an adjustable-radius magnetic storage ring for laser-cooled and Bose-condensed atoms. Additionally, we discuss a novel time-dependent variant of this and other ring traps. Time-orbiting ring traps provide a high optical access method for spin-flip loss prevention near a storage ring's circular magnetic field zero. Our scalable storage ring will allow one to probe the fundamental limits of condensate Sagnac interferometry.
