Achieving peak brightness in an atom laser

Robins, N.P; Figl, Cristina; Haine, S.A; Morrison, Adele; Jeppesen, M; Hope, J; Close, John


In this Letter we present experimental results and a simple analytic theory on the first continuous (long pulse) Raman atom laser. We analyze the flux and brightness of a generic two state atom laser with an analytic model that shows excellent agreement with our experiments. We show that, for the same source size, the brightness achievable with a Raman atom laser is at least 3 orders of magnitude greater than achievable in any other demonstrated continuously outcoupled atom laser.
