    Abstract

    As presented in another paper, the magnetic grating free induction decay may be produced in a sample of room temperature (300 K) 85Rb, demonstrating the coherence between alternate magnetic sublevels Δm = 2. The decay rate of this coherence is dominated by the dispersal of the atoms and proportional to the most probable velocity u of the atoms. This paper shown that by slowing and confining the atoms in a magneto-optic trap, the decay rate may be reduced by several orders of magnitude, and effects resulting from weak magnetic fields may be investigated.
