Figure 1:
"(a) shows an image in which the atom cloud has an e-1 radius of 36 µm in the trap x-y direction, and a peak absorption of 22%. These values correspond to 1.2 x 10 5 atoms with a temperature of 590 nK, giving N/Nc = 0.2. (b) shows the result of a separate load-evaporate cycle, giving N/Nc > 1, in which a distinct ringlike halo surrounding the absorption peak is observed."

The figure is from:
