Investigation and comparison of multi-state and two-state atom laser output-couplers

Dugue, J; Robins, Nicholas; Figl, Cristina; Jeppesen, M; Summers, Paul; Johnsson, Mattias; Hope, Joseph; Close, John


We investigate the spatial structure and temporal dynamics created in a Bose-Einstein condensate by radio-frequency atom laser-output couplers using a one-dimensional mean-field model. We compare the behavior of a "pure" two-state atom laser to the multilevel systems demonstrated in laboratories. In particular, we investigate the peak homogeneous output flux, classical fluctuations in the beam, and the onset of a bound state which shuts down the atom laser output.
