Title: Electrodynamic Trapping of Spinless Neutral Atoms with an Atom Chip

Abstract

Three-dimensional electrodynamic trapping of neutral atoms has been demonstrated. By applying time-varying inhomogeneous electric fields with micron-sized electrodes, nearly 10{sup 2} strontium atoms in the {sup 1}S{sub 0} state have been trapped with a lifetime of 80 ms. In order to design the electrodes, we numerically analyzed the electric field and simulated atomic trajectories in the trap, which showed reasonable agreement with the experiment.
