Abstract

We have captured 3.6 × 1010 cesium atoms in a magneto-optic trap loaded from a vapor cell. The 300-fold increase in the number of trapped atoms compared with that of previous research was accomplished by using larger laser intensities and 4-cm-diameter laser beams. The loading time constant was as short as 0.2 s.
