Abstract

A low velocity intense source (LVIS) of cold rubidium atoms is guided along a co-propagating far-off resonance light guide. An 8% enhancement of the guided atomic flux is observed in the steady state. Data are presented for the transient response of the LVIS to the guide beam observing a non-adiabatic kick and a transient 25% enhancement of the guided flux. A characteristic decay time of 0.45 s is recorded for the return to the steady state flux.
