ions in an overlapping Paul trap. In such a mixture,the ions are created from the MOT atoms and allowed to accumulate in the ion trap, which resultsin a signi cant reduction in the number of steady state MOT atoms. A theoretical rate equationmodel is developed to describe the evolution of the MOT atom number, due to ionization andion-atom collision, and derive an expression for the ion-atom collision rate coecient. The loss ofMOT atoms is studied systematically, by sequentially switching on… CONTINUE READING
