The technique used dramatically simplifies the production of laser-cooled atoms. In this experiment. 1.8 ⨯ 10 7 neutral cesium atoms were optically captured directly from a low-pressure vapor in ii small glass cell. We then cooled the < 1-mm 3 cloud of trapped atoms and loaded i t into a lowfield magnetic trap in the same cell. The magnetically trapped atoms had an effective temperature as low as 1.1 ± 0.2 μK, which is the lowest kinetic temperature ever observed and far colder than any previous sample of trapped atoms.
