Quantum correlations and atomic speckle
Here we utilize the single-atom detection capability of metastable helium to measure the second-order and third-order correlation functions for ensembles of ultracold atoms. We then extend these measurements to characterize the quantum statistics of atoms guided in a dipole potential. By appropriately loading atoms into the guide we are able to populate a selected number of guided modes, ranging from the majority of atoms in the lowest order mode (a BEC), to multi-mode guiding (equivalent to a...[Show more]
