Abstract

We have experimentally studied the effect of the trapping laser linewidth on the number of trapped atoms in a magneto-optical trap (MOT). Our data show that a significant number of the atoms can still be trapped in the MOT, even when the trapping laser linewidth is larger than the natural linewidth of the excited state of the driving transition.
