Experimental comparison of Raman and rf outcouplers for high-flux atom lasers

Debs, John; Doering, Daniel; Altin, Paul; Figl, Cristina; Dugue, J; Jeppesen, M; Schultz, Justin; Robins, Nicholas; Close, John


We study the properties of an atom laser beam derived from a Bose-Einstein condensate using three different outcouplers, one based on multistate radio-frequency transitions and two others based on Raman transitions capable of imparting momentum to the beam. We first summarize the differences that arise in such systems, and how they may impact on the use of an atom laser in interferometry. Experimentally, we examine the formation of a bound state in all three outcouplers, a phenomenon which...[Show more]
