Optically trapped atom interferometry using the clock transition of large 87 Rb Bose-Einstein condensates
We present a Ramsey-type atom interferometer operating with an optically trapped sample of 106 Bose-condensed87Rb atoms. We investigate this interferometer experimentally and theoretically with an eye to the construction of future high precision atomic sensors. Our results indicate that, with further experimental refinements, it will be possible to produce and measure the output of a sub-shot-noise-limited, large atom number BEC-based interferometer. The optical trap allows us to couple the |F...[Show more]
