Spin-flip transitions in a magnetic trap

Abstract:
There is currently a great deal of experimental interest in the trapping of alkali-metal atoms in magnetic traps. In this Brief Report we present a method for calculating nonadiabatic spin-flip transitions in such traps. We show that for realistic traps currently being used the loss rate due to this mechanism is exponentially small.
