These conditions ensure that the atoms will not undergo transitions to other substates and be lost from the magnetic trap but instead move in an effective potential given by the time average of the instantaneous magnetic potential over one rotation period of the field Brot .

The first demonstration of an atom laser, by the MIT group62 , used an RF pulse to transfer atoms into untrapped zeeman substates, where they then fell freely under gravity. A refinement of this technique, using a precisely controlled trap and cw-RF fields has been used to produce a quasi-cw coherent output beam63 .
