AbstractWe consider a waveguide for cold neutral atoms with a magnetic moment proportional to their spin angular momentum. The waveguide consists of a thin wire carrying a constant current. For the spin-1 case, we find bound states for the two-dimensional part of the motion around the wire, and present numerical and approximate analytic results for these bound states. In an experiment, the bound states can decay due to various effects, and we calculate the time scales involved.
