Paper Abstract

We report Bose-Einstein condensation of large numbers of 87Rb atoms in a magnetic time-averaged potential trap. Over 1.5 X 109 atoms, initially captured in the TOP trap, are evaporatively cooled down to temperatures near 100 nK. Condensates of up to 2 X 105 atoms at peak densities higher than 1014 cm-3 are observed.
