Paper Abstract

A time-orbiting potential trap can provide stable confinement for ultracold atoms. To lowest order the potential is harmonic, but it intrinsically includes anharominic contributions. These contributions are analyzed in terms of both the time-averaging mechanism and the inhomogeneity of the constituent fields. Methods to empirically characterize anharmonicity are developed and demonstrated.
