This paper presents the simulation and experimental results of charged microparticles dynamics in electrodynamic traps in a gas flow at atmospheric pressure. For the first time the capture and confinement of charged microparticles in a linear Paul trap has been experimentally confirmed at atmospheric pressure in gas flows. The regions of the microparticle, linear Paul trap and gas flow parameters needed for microparticle confinement have been obtained and experimentally tested.
