In this talk, I will report our recent study of an atom chip made of a gold microcircuit deposited on a transparent silicon carbide substrate. We have observed a very favorable thermal behavior, and demonstrated the possibility of creating a magneto-optical trap with some of the beams passing through the chip. I will discuss some possible applications of this technique including detecting the atoms through the chip or combining the advantages of atom chips with more complex systems requiring full optical access to the atoms.
