Abstract
We report on an experimental study of cold rubidium atoms in a magneto-optical trap. Fluorescent light from the cloud of trapped atoms was collected onto a CCD (charge coupled device) camera. The number density of atoms and the lifetime of the trap are deduced from the recorded CCD images. Special emphasis is given to the calibration of the COD camera.
