Abstract This paper demonstrates a detailed experimental study of our cloverleaf magnetic trap for sodium atoms. By using polarization dependent Zeeman spectroscopy of our atomic beam, passing the magnetic trap region, we have determined important trap parameters such as gradients, their curvatures and corresponding trap frequencies. Experimental findings are compared to theoretical calculations as well as complementary methods of characterizing the trap. © EDP Sciences, Societ`a Italiana di Fisica, Springer-Verlag 2008
